Today, the fine arts have evolved from being an object of pure observation or subject of provocation, to assuming a preeminent role within society. So, how do the attributes of Vallarta · Nayarit influence this perception?

In an inspiring exercise, the Vallarta Lifestyles editorial team has put together the first edition of 2023, exploring art from the point of view of seven talented artists who live in this corner of the Mexican Pacific.

Get to know these artists and their perception of art in Vallarta Nayarit.


“Art is a form of expression that each individual has. It manifests in what one believes in, using the gift one was born with to achieve things.” —Aldo Joya, architect.



“Art is the means by which you can express your emotions and what you think. It is the mirror through which the way you appreciate the world is reflected.” —Luis Lepe, painter.



“Art is the ultimate expression of the human spirit. It’s what moves and ignites us, allowing us to create a bond, inside and out.” —Daría González, sculptor.



“Art is an altered feeling of the creator, who seeks to provoke an emotion to those who appreciate it.” —Jorge Lara, musician.



“Art is a relentless exercise in discovering our vision of the universe. Here all your senses converge, agree, and explode outward to create what you represent in yourself.” —Nicté Escalante, poet.



“Art is everywhere, in gestures and looks, in smiles. It is a satisfying loop and every living being on our earth has one.” —Ana Vázquez, dancer.



“Art is the expression of the artist. Although art lacks a specific figure, it has many ways of being made, which means that the artist shares a vision of how it relates to its environment.” —Diego Ruvalcaba, filmmaker.
