Pipo Brockmann and Luis Espiridion to exhibit their work at Galería Contempo

Vallarta Lifestyles
Mar. 7, 2017

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.

“We started to advertise 7 or 8 years ago and certainly it has helped us position our brand. Now that we have improved a lot in quality, processes and finished products, our marketing in the magazine is precisely to strengthen the leadership we have earned through the 13 years in the area. I also think that we also have grown with the advertisement and that it has been done and it has helped us get to where we are now.”

"Since we started the company we have advertised in Vallarta Lifestyles, a publication that is considered ‘Puerto Vallarta’s Magazine’ by the quality of its images, content and staff, unique characteristics that encouraged us to say: ‘We have to be in Vallarta Lifestyles’. We know that this magazine is a reference for the target market that we are looking for and we know that being there gives us prestige.”
