MEXICAN ART & NATIVE CRAFTS

From globally renowned artists to the immense talent of local craftspeople, Mexico is home to a world-class art scene.

With internationally acclaimed artists such as Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Leonora Carrington, Mexico’s art scene and abundance of museums rival Europe’s best cultural centers. Whether you are interested in visiting the large exhibits of Mexico City, gallery hopping on the cobblestone streets of San Miguel de Allende, or exploring the street art in Oaxaca, Mexico has a lot to discover.

Mexico’s art scene is also rich with local artisans. Each region of Mexico offers unique and original handicrafts that are a reflection of the history of the area. At Journey Mexico we pride ourselves in working closely with artisans who are happy to open up their workshops and to explain the intricacies of their work to visitors.
