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.

“Vallarta Lifestyles was the first reliable magazine that emerged in our destination. In fact, up to date is the only publication that we have in Puerto Vallarta that you can be proud of, because if you give it to someone, you know that person will enjoy watching the photos and reading the articles in each of its pages. I consider, that it is the only magazine that prevails in Vallarta · Nayarit as an icon of this genre”.

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.”

“In a meeting that we had with the magazine’s founder, he told us about his dream of making a quality and luxury publication because he was convinced that Puerto Vallarta needed that. For that reason, we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles since its beginnings. These days, our brand is very well positioned thanks to the strategic distribution of the magazine, as it helps us reach more potential customers which is a great benefit for us.”
