John S Huerta.
creates vivid, modern portraits in a "Dia de los Muertos"style
by using bright colors and details to bring out life to each piece

Originally from Phoenix Arizona and now based in Sacramento area.
Huerta enjoyed painting since childhood. He found comfort in creating his own rendition of Dia de los Muertos art many years ago after losing his mother and sister to deal with the pain but to celebrate their life here on earth .  His works of art are a fixture at galleries, restaurants and many art festival in the state of California.

Dia De Los Muertos is a celebration on remembrance. It is also a time to come to terms with our mortality and become aware of the cycle of life and death. Rather than deny and fear death this event teaches us to accept and contemplate the meaning of mortality.
I would like to eventually run my art  businessfull time. since I work fulltime and running this business takes alot
of time, money and energy so I started a gofundme account
to hopefully to get funds to pay for coming events, supplies, material, lodging and transportation
to travel throughout the country.
so take a look at my gofundme website
and thank you so much everyone

My work is available for purchase on Etsy Website here the link just copy and paste on search bar
