Guanacaste, Costa Rica by Joseph Emanuelli

Real information and stories from Guanacaste , Costa Rica. Presneted by a long time expat living and working in Costa Rica
Guanacaste artist will open his 20th local show.

Painter and sculptor Ulises Jiménez Obregon opens his 20th exhibition in his home province of Guanacaste.

The show is at the Hidden Garden Art Gallery and is titled "People of Sun." The show runs through Jan. 13. In describing his show, the artist said “My work represents the historical sense of Guanacaste: where the sun has carved a human being, and cultural and physical characteristics very different from the rest of the country.” Jiménez has had over 50 collective and 35 individual exhibitions throughout Costa Rica. With more than five shows internationally, he continues absorbing and spreading his artistic knowledge by attending over 11 national and three international symposiums, he reported, adding that he recently returned from a four-month artistic journey to China and Spain. His sculptures are in private collections throughout the world, including France, Italy, Spain, China, Israel, Germany and Mexico, and throughout Central and South America, Canada and the United States. Jiménez was a part of a group at the school of fine arts at the Universidad Autónoma de Centroamérica in Heredia. Fellow sculptor Olger Villegas Cruz said  "Ulises always showed a great disposition for art. He continues to grow in terms of design and quality of expression, mainly thanks to a tireless fighter who only listens and obeys the dictates of his unswerving vocation, even in what can sometimes be a hostile environment, like sculpture art."

The Hidden Garden Art Gallery is west of Liberia on the main highway to Playas de Coco.
