BABYLON: We the People


BABYLON: We the People deals with socio-political issues that affect society today, and it is essentially these issues being addressed from the youth's point of view; as to why things like the student walkout (which occurs the day after our show) will be addressed and directly tie into the walkout itself.  A big canvas banner made for the walkout will be on display for the rest of the show. This is the first art show of its kind to be this politically charged, especially with all the students involved. This is in collaboration with two other artists in terms of visual art, and 7 other in terms of performance (including poetry, dance pieces, and sound pieces. The performance aspect of it will last for roughly 20 minutes after the doors open at 3:45.

Rafael Rodríguez Contreras “¡Arte Loco en Lámina de Metal!” Opening at Redbud Gallery

Contact Name:
Gus Kopriva
Contact Phone:

Please welcome Mexican folk artist Rafael Rodríguez Contreras to Redbud for his first US gallery exhibit.  His show “¡Arte Loco en Lámina de Metal!” (Crazy Art on Thin Sheet Metal) is curated by Kirk Baxter and Dave Waller who discovered this wonderful talent several years ago.  Rafael is one of those creative spirits that are largely unknown and located throughout our world. They toil on a daily basis making great art that brings joy and humor to our routine lives.


Rafael has been selling his work at the well-known traditional Mexican public market “La Lagunilla” which has been around since the Aztec era. Many of his works have gone to other countries such as England, France, Spain, Germany, Japan, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Argentina, Canada, and the United States.  In 2011 and 2012, he was invited to show his work in two calendars in Mexico, “Tequilero” and “The Mezcalero”.  In 2012, he was part of the collective exhibition “Favores Insolitos” at the Popular Art Museum.  In 2013, his work was sold at the “Lopez Morton” auction house in Mexico City. That same year, his paintings were exhibited at the MUJAN (Mexican Museum of the Old Toy).  He had a solo exhibit at the Gallery Chavez and at the MODO (Museum of the Object of the Object) in 2014.


Artist Statement:


“I was born in Mexico City on May 2, 1974. Since I was kid, I have always liked colors, shapes, and being creative using my imagination. All of my life, I have been close to the market “La Lagunilla”. In fact, one my uncles was the famous seller Ignacio Contreras Fuentes “El Chacharitas”.  He took my uncles, cousins and me to La Lagunilla.

At La Lagunilla, I saw art, sculpture, brass work, lamps, furniture and of course the paintings of very famous artists such as Diego Rivera, Frida Khalo, Chucho Reyes, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Chavez Morado and many more. My fascination with that world grew exponentially. I was entering into the amazing Pre-Columbian world.  The Mexican culture, bargaining, and the different personalities of sellers and buyers left such a mark in my life that I had the need to express what I felt.  My first approach as a kid was drawing with pencils.  I did not have the chance to go to art school so I consider myself self-taught. I have been doing the same technique for 23 years: thin tin painting. It is my way to express what I feel and see and preserve my work on hard material.”



The exhibit will be on display from May 5 through May 27, 2018.


Opening Reception: Saturday, May 5 from 6pm to 9pm.
