Galería Contempo announced they will be holding their last exhibition of this winter season to be held this Friday, March 10th, with a special double showcase of the art pieces of artists Pipo Brockmann and Luis Espiridion.

Pipo Brockmann

Guillermo ‘Pipo’ Brockmann, is a Mexican painter who grew up watching his mother paint and his father design homes. He received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and his MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art.

Pipo’s paintings are usually done on wood using dabs and knives full of impasto color, brushstrokes and dribbles of loose paint. He works in a variety of media on a large non restrictive scale and his style is deliberately abstract with a bold use of colour. The theme varies from dogs, animals, trees, and the human figure.

Luis Espiridion

The sculptural work of Guadalajara-born Luis Espiridion has a deep and playful feeling. An artist with an uninterrupted history of 30 years, his work is very versatile and affects different aspects of three-dimensionality. Espiridion undertook the task of shaping and filling empty spaces through his sculptures, that can be either made of bronze, steel or resin.

His sculptures tend to be expressionistic and his figures seem to be alive: Human figures appear mutilated and challenging gravity. Missing arms, some have holes in their bodies and  their patinas evoke the troubled Austrian expressionist painting Egon Schiele. Espiridion sculptures could represent an evolution of the work of Alberto Giacometti who the Mexican sculptor considers his inspiration.

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles has helped us a lot to position our business, the fact that people see us in the magazine has contributed their coming back to Faith Colectiva. Actually, we have measured the reach of our advertising by offering a free gift and it is unbelievable to see them coming with the issue.”

“We have been advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles since the opening of our restaurant, and since then, we have kept a strong relationship. Due to its scope and distribution, the campaigns that we advertised regarding our different culinary projects have always been a success. This magazine has been consolidated as a benchmark that promotes the beauty of our destination in a creative and effective way.”
