One of the oldest Mexican traditions is the painting. In the Pre-Hispanic Mexico, painting was found in buildings, walls, codices, ceramic, and clothing. The oldest cave art of Mexico, 7,500 years old, is located near Cabo in Baja California.
Later, the painting evolved with the Spanish colonization, indigenous painters were asked to paint catholic motives in churches and convents. Despite the Spanish influenced in the painting, the Mexican painters preserved their love for bright colors and characteristic shapes, adding their own interpretation to European catholic images. Currently, you can easily find everyday objects for personal use or home décor around Mexico, decorated with colorful paintings of nature.
