FOLK ART

Our Taste Design offers a Folk Art selection with hard-to-find items perfect for Collectors of Authentic Central and South American Ethnographic Handicraft and Folk Art, Residential or Commercial Designers, Architects, along with University Museums.

Our selection from Mexico has painted pieces from Metepec, Oaxaca, and Ocumicho and vintage Nahua pottery from Guerrero. It also includes Día de los Muertos, Trees of Life, churches, whimsical animal sculptures and masks, along with works by Ezequiel Blas, Herón Martínez Mendoza, Calendario Medrano, Juan José Ramos Medrano, and Gerardo Ortega.

Our selection from Peru has vintage pottery pieces including churches, musicians, llamas, and Pucará bulls in different sizes along with retablos from Nicario Jiménez and Eleudora & Mabilon Jimenez. Pottery from the Shipibo-Conibo peoples in Peru and the Canelos-Quichua in Ecuador complete the collection.
