Resilient Voices: The Art of David Tineo


February 4 – April 2

Internationally recognized painter and muralist, David Tineo is a wildly prolific artist whose paintings are imbued with symbols of Aztec and Chicano identity. Images of gods and goddesses, animals, and landscapes embody the spiritual resilience that is required when living in a border town, in between two worlds as it were. Themes of struggle, identity, and salvation are expressed through his use of brilliant colors and energetic brushwork. In his own words, his “art conveys the sense of the human Spirit and the hope of humanity.”
