Guillermo Bert | America Mestiza

America Mestiza embodies the symbols representative of diverse homelands of the Latino indigenous diaspora in Los Angeles. The iconographies, borrowed from indigenous textile designs of Mayan, Zapotec, and Mixtecan peoples find common ground in shared experiences in the hybrid cultures of America, and the artistic fusion of their design elements through the Community of Angels project.
