Galería Contempo has recently announced the upcoming opening reception for Cuban-born artist Yoel Diaz Galvez, to take place Friday, January 26 from 6:00pm – 10:00pm at the venue located at Basilio Badillo 252, in the Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone.

This will be the second time Diaz exhibits at Galería Contempo. Four years ago, he had his first appearance but his recurring exhibitions at national and international biennales made almost impossible a second one until now. The exhibition’s name, “A little bit of myself”, reflects this artist’s approach on the essence as the component of one’s identity and makes a formidable statement about Cubans leaving the island.

Yoel’s hyper-realistic pieces are collected by individuals, businesses and museums throughout Europe and the entire world. He was honored with the first prize for best oil on canvas painting at the 2011 Biennale in Florence, Italy. Last year, he won the third prize at the Buenos Aires Contemporary Biennale for another one of his oils on canvas.


“For us, it is a great honor and achievement to have this top-level exhibition and artist at our venue”, commented Rodolfo Choperena, Galería Contempo owner.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”

“There are lots of reasons why we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles for several years. One of them is that they know pretty well their target, because they know who are their readers and they adapt as much as possible the content and material that is offered. For these reasons they have a growing number of readers which is very important for us. Another reason is that many people  —including us— think that the magazine has been as a serious publication since its beginnings. Historically, Vallarta Lifestyles has known how to capture the audience and has done it pretty well."

Director of the Pacific breaches

“Vallarta Lifestyles speaks for itself, it’s a good quality publication with great image, that’s why we have advertised since we started our business. Without any doubt, it is the most read magazine. Its articles and advertising are target to the audience we’re looking for. Vallarta Lifestyles has grown the same way Puerto Vallarta has.”
