Mamani Mamani is a Bolivian artist who enjoys international recognition for Aymara because his works reflect a world full of bright colors and symbols, which contrasts with the melancholy images portraying rural Andean life from other artists. This time, his yellows, blues, reds and greens were painted on half naked body of Bolivian beauty queens in the theme of "falling in love" mixed with the feeling of being subjected to a ritual sacrifice. The series of body paintings launched in July had a photo shoot and in the end were printed on the calendar 2013.
Deepcool,as one of sponsors for this event, expected this art school can help children realize their dreams in their art world. In the mean time, it is hoped that more and more people can understand the culture of the Aymara from the art school and this hidden world.
