Amado Maurilio Pena

Mexican American artist and educator Amado Maurilio Peña produces serigraphs of Hispanic and Indigenous figures of the American Southwest. His bold, dynamic prints honor the strength and dignity of his people and are a “tribute to the Native Americans who survive by living in harmony with an adversarial, untamed environment.” Inspired by landmarks in New Mexico and Arizona—namely Canyon de Chelly, Spider Rock, and Enchanted Mesa—each abstract landscape merges “with exaggerated human forms; blanket and pottery patterns further echo the shapes of the land.”
