Welcome to this online art gallery for Neocrotalic art, where you can discover some representative wall art made by mexican artist Javier Lopez Pastrana. This artworks were made according with the manifesto neocrotalico written several years ago by the artist influenced by the arquelogist and journalist Jose Diaz Bolio and his theory of the crotalic art employed by the ancient mayan culture using the canamayte cuadrivertice proportions (rattle snake pattern). Mayan folk art was created on ancient times with this pattern which you will find out in every single artwork of this gallery. We hope you enjoy it, and we encourage you to read the neocrotalic manifest in order to acquire a different and unique perspective beside the composition and message of each artwork. 


Currently, the new knowledge that is being given in quantum physics and that is just in the process of understanding it has made me as a plastic artist have involved myself in a visual representation of the historical moment in which we develop.

These forms are inclined to a graphic and symbolic language with respect to a plastic construction with elements that recall the hardware and software that involve the new quantum computer and whose elements will no longer be the "bits" but the "cubits", it will no longer be only the one or zero, but one, zero or both at the same time.

These symbolic elements are grouped as a whole in the NeoCrotalic language showing how a new reality and understanding of the universe does not address and where ideas about atomic sub particles such as those observed in hadron colliders and that can be manifested in the work.

LA CEYBA SAGRADA NeoCrotalic Artwork by Javier Lopez Pastrana

Wanting to represent a Neo Crotalic tree has the intention of generating a magical, sacred environment that causes tranquility and balance in the spirit. The books of the Popol Vuh and also the Chilam Balam refer to four forces that sustain the sky. They made the earth emerge as the sky fell and came to plant a Ceyba in the center from which the first man was born. Tree whose trunk represents our intertwined lives, the branches to the sky and the roots to the underworld. The Mayan universe.

There are early stages at the beginning of the age of humans that we could well call the spring of human development within which individuals with a high level of objective consciousness to those who are usually called "illuminated".

The plastic representation of "the three saints" halls to the trinity of the three creating forces of the universe to know: the active, neutral, and passive forces. It is a symbolic expression whose intention is to cause a feeling of awakening from consciousness through the divinity that some individuals have manifested in different periods. The environment of textile and polymorphic images within the Neo Crotalic composition employed brings us to revive our collective memory reaffirming with it our Mexican roots.

Within semiotics, the study of human-made signs and symbols over time in order to represent various ideas of multiple kinds is a subject that the artist tries to symbolize as the evolutionary product of the logical and abstract mind of humanity. .

"MIGRACION" (2005) Neocrotalic artwork by Javier Lopez Pastrana

In a neocrotalic style, the work “migration” projects an allegory of the human movements that take place in rural areas towards urban areas in search of well-being, in migration they carry besides their body, their spiritual wealth, their customs, their cosmogonia, its habits and in its meeting it will be subtracted or added to its individual personality or to the personality of the urban community. The mixture has happened and there is no going back. A cultural miscegenation.

Nuclear plants are not the best option to produce energy when there are cleaner forms of energy generation. In the work radioactive human remains appear as a symbolism of the work "la coyolchauqui" of Aztec culture.
