These examples of Latin American art might vary in form, but most of them adhere to a distinct style that is characteristic of this particular region of the world. Intricate, colorful and often surreal, the imagery created is often steeped in tradition and folklore for which this culture is known for.

From Mexico's Day of the Dead celebrations to more abstract concepts, this collection of Latin American art shows that people hailing from these countries or simply influenced by them are not afraid of bold representations, bright colors and dark influences. A balance between happy and serious, Latin American art is full of richness. It encourages people to escape their everyday concerns for a world of mystery and fantasy.
