The tradition of the Andean loom is closely linked to a great spirituality, which represents aptitude and technique. An attitude towards life and, above all, personal growth exercises. Weaving Master Constantino Laura began next to his father, absorbing every detail and every intention as if they were seeds that he would take care of and grow in time. A weaver, painter and poet, Tino comes from a family of weavers from Ayacucho. He is currently one of the most recognized contemporary textile artists in Latin America and his career includes prestigious biennials and textile exhibitions worldwide.
Since moving to the capital Lima he has incorporated a more contemporary technique that brings his traditional designs and symbols to life. Constantino has participated in a number of World Textile Art biennales including ones in Buenos Aires, México city, Montevideo and Spain. Constantino Laura's work can be found in Galeria Colectika in Puerto Vallarta and in Peyote People in Oaxaca city.
