Born in 1965, Edmundo Contreras Aquise works in the 'andahuaylino' style. He uses painted glass and crackled finishes in a technique both traditional and modern. His motifs range from pre-Hispanic, colonial and ethnic to the Andean world and its wildlife. 'I inherited my interest in art from my mother. As an adolescent, I liked to create cartoons as a form of social protest (when terrorists threatened our land). I've exhibited my work at arts and crafts fairs, and in 1995 took first place in the Concurso Internacional para America Latina y el Caribe, winning the UNESCO Prize. One of my proudest moments was receiving the Vizcardo and Guzman Medal as a master artisan, awarded by the Peruvian Congress in 2002. My dream is for my art to be known and appreciated outside my country.'

I really enjoy this mirror. I know that mirrors are in style, but I wanted something more than just a plain mirror. The painting on the edges make it so much more attractive. I added some candles and sconces on each side and it is very attractive in my living room. We have had many compliments. It is very good quality and worth the money that I paid for it.Read More

The frame pattern repetition is detailed and consistent, without appearing mass-produced. Sound construction. Mirror is a bit small, but perfect for accent, guest room or quick hair/face check.Read More

The painting is just beautiful and it's signed by the artist in an inconspicuous place. The colors are beautiful earth tones of sage green, golds & brown with a beautiful gold frame. I'm using this over a small vanity in a 1/2 bath and it's special.Read More
I ordered this mirror for my newly renovated powder room and it is spectacular. I am on a tight budget and was going to return it because of the price, but after seeing it, I could not possibly send it back. The price is very inexpensive for such an elegant artistic mirror. I am thrilled, as is everyone who sees it!Read More
