Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Jesus learned the art of retablo sculpture from Peruvian master artisan Joaquin Lopez de Antay. In turn, he has passed this knowledge to his wife, daughter and nephew who work alongside him in his family workshop. Retablos are one of the most popular Peruvian art forms. They recount the spirit and traditions of Andean culture in dynamic hand-modeled dioramas that capture the mundane and magical moments that define lives.

Jesus has received the Amauta de la Artesania Peruana. It is a prestigious award given not only to those who are master craftspeople but to those who have shared their craft with the next generation.

Jesus Urbano's work has been featured in the most important Peruvian national newspapers and he has received international media coverage.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
