There he is considered to be one of the most popular and best selling painters in that town, which is itself famous for being the home of many accomplished artists collected by enthusiasts from around the world.

Roberto Vazquez is a talented painter in his mid forties originally from Tlaquepaque and Guadalajara who now lives in Puerto Vallarta. His soft spoken and gentle nature obscures the fact that he was once a talented fighter training for Mexico’s Olympic boxing team. The same hands that now create with such sensitivity once broke noses and knocked opponents to the mat.He enrolled in classes at the school of the famous museum of that city, el Hospicio Cultural Cabanas. This training along with his lifelong interest in Mexico’s indigenous cultures helped to shape his painting style.
