Peruvian Life With Alcides Medina Umeres Curated by: Koshari
Alcides Medina Umeres uses detail and rich colors in his paintings that pull you right into the picture. It's astonishing considering that he is a self taught artist! He's had numberous exhibitions throughout Peru and Latin America. In the artists own words: "I find my inspiration in nature and my people, in the mountains and in the magnificence of the landscape, which provides the palette of colors I use. I look on all of these with eyes of love, trying to read and understand their subtle message. Painting is all I do, and fills me with a deep spiritual richness. I in turn attempt to convey emotions through the use of oils, brushes and palette knife, which I apply on canvases or corduroy. I prefer dark canvases - black, brown, blue - where I search for the contrast between warm and cold colors."

About the Curator
I love world cultures, art, archaeology, ancient history and anything ethnic and tribal. I'm an advocate for human rights and the environment. I'm a 3D content creator in various virtual worlds. I love curating for Novica! It's a balancing act to add interesting and complimentary images from the mood gallery without taking away from, or overpowering the products ... it can be a challenge but one that I thoroughly love doing. There are so many great artisans to try to represent, I hope to eventually include all of them in my gallery.
