Welcome to Peyote People. We are based in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where we have run a Native Folk Art Gallery since 1997 that works directly with the Huichol artists and their families.
Excelente Castro is a Mexican artist. He comes from a mixed background of Wixarika (Huichol) from his father, and Nahuatl from his mother. He learned the craft from his father, where he started working at a very young age. Thus, Excelente sold his first yarn paintings at the age of 12. He has also participated in several contests such as the Gran Concurso National de Arte Popular.
Excelente’s art is a blend of surrealism with the classic style of Wixarika (Huichol) art. His artwork adopts the old symbols and portrays them in new ways. For example, his series of fractal surrealism shows the way in which peyote guides the shaman towards enlightenment.
