On September 1, 2023 at 6:00 pm, in the Fort Smith Museum of History’s “Boyd Gallery” artistic works rich in cultural themes created by Mexican artist Isaac Helguera and El Salvadorian artist, Madjer Linares will debut.
Of his work, Maestro Isaac Helguera explains his themes as historical characters, customs and traditions of Mexico. “With a heart deeply rooted in my heritage, I find profound joy in capturing the essence of my [pueblo] through its landscapes and the tales of history that have been passed down to me”.
Madjer Linares (Moises Esaú Linares Merino) is an artist and architect born in San Vicente, El Salvador in 1993. From an early age, he showed interest in art and took drawing and painting courses in modest art schools outside the country's capital. While living in the city, he was drawn to the aesthetics of graffiti and began to explore the world of street art and vandalism.
