About the Artist
As a Mexican-born artist, Evelyn Vargas is dedicated to preserving and sharing her culture, working with tradition while creating her own style. Through her use of a handmade bark paper medium, historically used by Meso-American cultures to create manuscripts, she expresses the richness of Mexican culture, complemented with her work featuring mythical flora and fauna scenes. Her work is primarily rooted in Mexican traditions and executed in meticulous details and organic patterns. Evelyn embraces vibrant colours, folklore and ancient cultures from her home country and incorporates them into her work in a contemporary way.
The magical atmosphere of her paintings comes from the love for and observation of nature. For her, nature symbolizes life. She strongly believes in the connection between all humans and nature and by combining real symbolism with her imaginary world, her pieces portray a message that man will always be an integral part of nature and that this mutual relationship should be carefully maintained and nurtured.
