Peru's Edmundo Contreras says, 'I inherited my interest in art from my mother, a weaver. As an adolescent, I enjoyed painting and liked to create cartoons as a form of social protest (when terrorists threatened our land). Now I specialize in painted glass and crackled finishes, in a technique that is both traditional and modern. My themes range from the pre-Hispanic, colonial, and ethnic, to the beauty and culture of the Andean world and its wildlife.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
