Primo Vega, born in Ario de Rosales, Michoacan, Mexico.
“His painting smelled of the countryside. The Peace in his strokes could almost be touched with one’s own fingertips because nothing in his work was grotesque or exaggerated, there was no violence, no noise. It was an invitation to silence, to all that placid, to calmness”. Jaime Lopez Isaza, member of the Spanish Association of Art Critics (AECA)
