Produced by native young people native from the diverse communities that represent and compose the indigenous world of Chiapas. Some artist are self-taught, others with academic instruction, but all with the intention of expressing and translating in the particular language of art, their reflections, questions, criticisms, identifications, imaginary longings, differences and similarities. It is a type of art that is gestated from identities, contexts, cultures of these social subjects. Indigenous art opens the door of globalization with the desire to be exposed, to be seen, thought and problematized from all interested perspectives and when conditions are propitious, to engage in a creative conceptual dialogue.
Our interest an effort falls on the art produced by the young people of the Chiapas, from the art that comes from the view of the mexican youth. In the midst fo a convulsed society with the eye on art as way of a social and subjective transformation, we focus on the young expression as a social phenomenon essential to provide understanding an ideation of approaches for the reconstruction of a mor justice an eloquent society.
The walls of San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, show us the work of dozens of artists who comes out of their studio and from the ideation and elaboration face their work to the viewer of the viewer, the walker, the citizen, the neighbor, walls that works as containers of messages and images that face and integrate the future of the city. There is no doubt about the importance of the role played by urban art in the development of the artistic movement of a city, of a country. In Arteria we support and encourage the creation of these young artists who begin their journey in art through the streets and neighborhoods of the city, to integrate into their expression diverse media and formats that allow them to experiment and develop their artistic proposals.
