Artist Participant List

Booth 33 Originally from the Andean region of Ayacucho, Claudio Jimenez Quispe was born into a long line of retablistas, creators of traditional devotional artworks known as retablos. Bursting with vibrant colors, the figures occupying Claudio’s retablos are formed by hand from a mixture of plaster and boiled potatoes sculpted around armatures. They are painted with tempera, with tiny details applied with cactus spines.
