CC056: The Life of a Spanish Colonial Artist, with Guest Jerry Montoya
Play episode

A “santero” is a practitioner of the only Catholic Spanish colonial artform that is indigenous to the American southwest. Many santeros still create art in the same way as their ancestors – from grinding up the shells of the cochineal bug to make red pigment, to depicting patron saints and religious icons.

Guest Jerry Montoya joins Bishop Wall to talk about growing up in a New Mexico mining community, learning to make Spanish colonial art, and Spanish fiestas and festivals.
