Jaime Zapata Espinoza creates masks inspired by his profound Peruvian roots. 'My objective is to transmit human emotions in seemingly animated objects. I use recycled paper and textiles, cans, and some vegetal elements like rushes. Colors are given with natural oxides and earths. To decorate my pieces I also use hand-woven elements with Inca motifs,' explains the artisan, who has exhibited his work in Peru, Germany and Japan.What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
