Calle de Panchimalco
Calle de Panchimalco – A Street in Panchimalco. A standard village street view, echoed many times in pictures sold at artisan markets, here is transformed by Jose Mejia Vides as he paints his home town. The vivid colors he picks clash but harmonize in a heat. The looming mountains behind the row of houses shows almost cubist lines in their abstractness, and their colors show his training as he pairs yellows with purple shadows. Finally, the eye draws to the solitary woman walking in the hot midday sun.
