First Annual Holiday Summer Show
This is the first of an annual holiday show featuring Artists from Mexico and around the globe, coming together to wrap up the year. This years feature personality is UK artist Heath Kane, whose work Masks of Fear has been featured on the cover of Wired Magazine Italy as part of the special article written by Nadia Tolokonnikova from "Pussy Riot". His work has traveled the globe, and is now coming to Todos Santos, where he has created an original piece for us to enjoy; the newest iteration of Hero Portraits of which the original hung at the Louvre in Paris, France.
Inspired by master painted portraits, this piece above sets out to reveal how classical art was often a means for wealthy individuals to portray their alter ego. It playfully suggests that perhaps the classical portrait artists were the photoshop and Instagram filter of their time.
Artists to be announced
Confirmed: Heath Kane, Fernando Ramirez, Mark Gabriel and more...

Echoing his mother words "somewhere I must gone wrong raising you", Heath has not been one to stay on the straight and narrow path. With an insatiable curiosity for oddities and irregularities in life, Heath’s eyes are always open finding new things.
Born in Australia, Heath quickly took flight to explore the world in his early 20’s. During that time has been working at the forefront of design, working for many of the world’s leading advertising and branding agencies.
Now turning his attention back to art, his debut collection draws inspiration from his commercial art background and origins of urban art – a blend of design and art. His approach follows the practice of design thinking, with a focus on creating simple, iconic and memorable pieces that have the ability to tell stories and are linked to a larger narrative. Within the, often lurid colour, artwork he tries to distill subtle but often subversive themes.
“The important thing for me is not just what it looks like and feels like, it is what it makes you think”.
