CALEXICO-Â The Calexico Arts Commission and the city of Calexico chose Eduardo Kintero for the December Artist of the Month for his active role in enriching the artistic culture within various venues throughout the town.
Eduardo Kinteroâ€™s art exhibit currently is held at the Carmen Durazo Cultural Arts Center, which is open to the public.
Art afficionados came to the artistâ€™s reception, December 6, to view his exhibit entitled, â€œRetratos de Eduardo Kintero,â€ which portrayed his subjects in a contemporary light.
One of Kinteroâ€™s pieces, â€œNosotros,â€ which translated means â€œus,â€ depicts a man and a woman’s face created in a 3-D fashion with ceramic on a black canvas, giving an interesting perspective.
Other pieces from his gallery included, â€œDiegoâ€ and â€œXimenaâ€, where the artist used acrylic paints to construct the two works portraying children, displaying their faces with vibrant colors.
