IZEL comes from Nahuatl, the ancient language of the Aztecs (the native people of pre-conquest Mexico) and it translates as “unique”.
IZEL ART would, therefore, mean unique art. And given that the origin of the word IZEL comes from our Mesoamerican ancestors, IZEL ART embraces arts and crafts from the people of the region today.
What is more, IZEL ART can also be thought of as a play of words, because when pronouncing it in English, it can be understood as the sentence “I sell art”, which is our reason of existence.
IZEL ART aims to showcase and sell a selection of Latinamerican works of famous, as well as up and coming, painters and hand made crafts, with the intention to export our folkloric culture and support those hard working painters and artisans back home.
