“I’m proud to present rising star Sean Michael Chavez, his first two shows with us completely sold out. I’m excited to see what this new show brings”, said Carlos Acosta, gallery owner. “Sean paints our culture, heritage and scenic beauty, basically paints what he knows, feels and lives. He’s bringing to new light our Mexican Vaqueros, the original western cowboys, who tend to be underrepresented in the art market.”

With around 20 paintings both large and small planned for the show, Chavez’s newest work will further expand upon the themes and subjects that he has come to be recognized for (vaqueros, landscapes, and hollyhocks) while tightening his techniques and range of color pallets. He will be taking his new work to a new level.

“This show will be bigger and better than the last, with a few surprises in store”, said S.M. Chavez about his new show, which will further reinforce his distinctive style and strong design aesthetic within the contemporary western genre.
