The purpose for the images that were created for this show was simply to provoke questions about the origins of ancient text descriptions of “visitors” or “saints”. The local artist, known as Aztec Smurf, was hoping these images could also be a catalyst for questioning the heavenly beings that brought the knowledge and messages to us humans. Through his own research and the need to know more about ancient knowledge, he began creating and seeing these images in his head. Along with the possibilities for all these stories of these ancient beings, or rather, saints and aliens, and their history.
In this series of work, the artist aimed to explore a different point of view regarding all the ancient stories in Christianity while simultaneously paying homage to the amazing art movement that left behind beautiful masterpieces.
