San Jose Art Scene: Ivan Guaderrama
Many of our Hotel Casa Natalia guests will recognize the work of Ivan Guadarrama, even if they have never visited his San Jose gallery. We regularly feature Ivan’s beautiful pieces around our hotel and it’s easy to see why! This beautiful piece hung in our entry way as a welcome to our travelers and explorers.
Ivan Guadarrama masterfully creates unique interactive art pieces as well as inspirational and religious-inspired pieces. As you wander Ivan’s gallery in the San Jose del Cabo Art District, you’ll notice that the walls are filled with positive messages, bible verses and angelic imagery. At just 31 years old, Ivan is a creative presence to be reckoned with. He was introduced to airbrush painting in high school, then developed his artistic skills while studying at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Soon after graduating, Ivan created what he calls “Live Texture,” in which he combines oil, acrylic paint, marble powder and resins to enhance the material characteristic of his work. Since then, Ivan has introduced fans to his unforgettable interactive art installations. It is safe to say that Ivan has produced some of the most unique pieces art lovers have ever seen. When you enter the gallery, forget that old rule: “Don’t touch the art.” Ivan created his art to be touched!
