An Original Art Exhibit by Mark Castillo
July – August 2019
Central Library | 1st Floor Gallery
Visual Poetry is an exhibit inspired by the artistic use of language, time and storytelling of the peoples of ancient Mesoamerica, specifically the ancient Mayans. Mark Castillo uses ancient Mayan hieroglyphs (or epigraphy) to showcase his artistic talent. While Mayan symbolism is used, the symbols function as aesthetic objects rather than being the subject of the art.
