Oaxacan artist Fulgencio Lazo is an exceptional painter whose work is firmly grounded in a unique and fine perception of his own cultural origins. Fueled by discipline and an uncompromising devotion to his craft, his expression has attained an amazing level of maturity. Lazo brandishes his brush in celebration of life, much like the women that float perpetually in his paintings, heralding with their trumpets a time of harmony and hope.
