Mexican Art

NeoCrotalic Mexican Art is a contemporary art movement that revives traditional Mesoamerican design principles in a modern context. The movement was founded by artist Javier López Pastrana in 2003, and it has since grown to include a number of other artists from Mexico. NeoCrotalic art is characterized by its use of Mayan geometric shapes, the "Best Maugard method" promoted by Jose Vasconcelos, the use of  bold colors, and intricate patterns. It often explores global themes of technology, spiritual and social aspects that are worth a reflection for viewers.
