Illustrations and paintings that have an air of autumn and winter, horror, mysticism and weirdness.

In the distant sunny Mexico, where everybody wears sombreros and ponchos, sing and dance folk dances to the hearty beats of drums, where cactus are spread all around and the natives chase tequila all day long, lives and works an unusual for this place the talented artist Luis Gabriel Pacheco.

The artist is pretty unusual, that creates illustrations and paintings that have an air of autumn, winter, horror, mysticism and weirdness that hardly can be associated with warm Mexican temperament.
Pacheco creates illustrations for a variety of literary works: poetry anthologies , books, Garcia Lorca, Susan Fletcher, tales of the Brothers Grimm.
According to the artist, his works can be traced to the influence of paintings by Marc Chagall, Hieronymus Bosch and the choreography of Pina Bausch.
Pacheco’s artworks are someway childishly clear but they retain  beholder’s  attention with their poetry, melody and nostalgia.
You can check out more stunning pieces on his blog.
