Artist Carlos Cabán Unveils New Mural

CARLOS CABAN

By Charles Martin

Robbie and Max McClintock have the honor and pleasure of inviting you to the unveiling of their mural “The Story Tellers” by maestro Carlos Cabán.

Cabán, a resident of San Miguel for more than 22 years, has had a distinguished career as a book and courtroom illustrator, painter, teacher, and now muralist. Instead of working in an art agency, Cabán, a graduate of Pratt Institute, chose to join the Peace Corps and help establish an art school for native Wayuú children in the desert peninsula of La Guajira in Colombia.

This experience of sharing life with South American native people changed his life, his spirituality, and his art forever. This brought him to Mexico to live and paint his experiences with the Huichol peoples who still use peyote in their ceremonies.

Since then his paintings, drawings, and illustrations have focused on indigenous themes and spirituality and what can be called his own “Visionary Art.”

For the last two years, Cabán has been working on “The Story Tellers,” commissioned by Robbie and Max McClintock. Robbie is a writer and emeritus professor in the historical and philosophical foundations of education and has taught at Teachers College, Columbia University. Max is a teacher and historian.

The mural is the result of collaboration between the McClintocks and Cabán, portraying the Greek creation myths and those of Mesoamerica in a way that they could be read visually.

Now, after almost two years of research, many sketches, and many hours of painting, the mural finally comes to an end…and thus is born. Come see it at Calle Huertas 21 on March 23, 5:30pm–8 pm
