Eduardo Kintero Named Calexico’s Artist of the Month


CALEXICO- 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 Kintero’s art exhibit currently is held at the Carmen Durazo Cultural Arts Center, which is open to the public.

Art afficionados came to the artist’s reception, December 6, to view his exhibit entitled, “Retratos de Eduardo Kintero,” which portrayed his subjects in a contemporary light.

One of Kintero’s pieces, “Nosotros,” which translated means “us,” 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, “Diego” and “Ximena”, where the artist used acrylic paints to construct the two works portraying children, displaying their faces with vibrant colors.
