Domingo Rojas Morales: Painter

   
      
        ornament artists                
    
    

“I have been creating Boruca masks since 2000. All of my pieces are unique because I put my heart and soul into every detail, which is why it takes me two to three days to complete a piece. I usually work with other artists, but sometimes I wander up into the mountains to take photos and to find silence and inspiration. There is so much more I want to do including study English to teach. I also want to learn about environmentally friendly construction to build my home.” 

Domingo’s work has a distinctive and uplifting boldness. For three years, he lived in Guanacaste, a beach tourist town, where he had the unique experience of running his own gallery. That gave him an expanded business perspective of what it takes to promote his own art.

“Carving is my passion. It is a way of life for me. I have been carving Boruca masks since 2009, when I started studying under my uncle, German. Now, for traditional festivals, I help many young people in my community with their masks.”

Today, Emilio proudly creates his masks at Taller Brún̈crin̈and has spent many years refining his art. He loves sharing his art when it’s complete and feels it’s immensely important to always remember and teach old traditions and rituals. He has hopes to one day travel to Peru and visit Machu Picchu to see other beautiful landscapes.
