JOHN PAUL GRANILLO
I am a young Chicano artist born and raised in Santa Fe. Focusing on Iconography of New Mexico culture, family roots, and political issues in our communities. My process of creating a mural varies on my application of layers of mixed media such as wheat pasting, airbrush, spray paint, and acrylic paint. My goal is strongly focused on creating a mural that is aesthetically beautiful while giving a voice to the people and create a message of taking pride in our communities. My hope is that the largest art critic to the individual who knows nothing about art can enjoy this creation. My belief is whoever controls the wall controls the voice. I have done murals for Meow Wolf, The International Folk-Art Museum, Siler Yard Arts, The City of Santa Fe and ArtSmart Creativity Center. In 2018 I took a two week trip to Chichen Itza Mexico to focus on the indigenous Mayan Culture and their application of pigments to stone structures. In 2019 I traveled to Machu Picchu in Peru for one month to focus on indigenous art. Recently I joined a collaborative group of professional artists and display my oil and acrylic paintings full-time at 7 Arts Gallery in Santa Fe.
Angel Wynn is a full time artist and photographer who moved to New Mexico in 2011. The Santa Fe arts scene inspires Wynn to utilize an assortment of mixed media to alter her photographic images to create art. Collaborating with seven Santa Fe artists, Wynn opened up 7 Arts Gallery which includes working studio space in a retail location near the Plaza. Wynn has created series on topics such as The American Bison, The Anasazi, Mexico’s Revolution, Frida Kahlo and Route 66. Last Spring Wynn created an interactive art series of large mural size pieces titled “WINGS”, to build awareness of volunteer groups who bring compassion and supplies to the people stranded along the US-Mexico border. Wynn teaches workshops on her creative process through Airbnb Experiences, Artisans, the Museum of Encaustic Art and inside her downtown studio. Wynn’s new series “Graffiti Rodeo” includes a mix of aerosol paint, acrylics, street lettering, photographic images and wheat paste. Through the years, Wynn has built up a long list of collectors from around the world. Through her gallery, Wynn organizes guest artist shows, art events, studio demonstrations and offers creative workshops to locals and tourists. For young up-and-coming artists who are just starting their careers; Wynn grants one-on-one internships, mentors artists on self promotion and discusses opportunities that could best advance their careers. Associations that Wynn participates with are the Santa Fe Studio Tour, ArtSmart, Canyon Road Merchants Association, City of Santa Fe, Artist Medical Fund, Museum of Encaustic Art and most recently a Meow Wolf /WESST event.
