Carlos Callejo, who lives and works in San Pedro, has over thirty years experience designing, directing, and coordinating public art projects. He has created dozens of public artworks, including murals he painted for the Smithsonian Institution’s Festival of American Folk Life in Washington, D.C., the Silver City Tourist and Visitors’ Bureau, and the El Paso County Courthouse’s atrium. His work takes inspiration from the great muralists of post-revolutionary Mexico and he frequently creates art that combines historical and mythic imagery.
Carlos studied art at California State University and the Otis Art Institute, and he received a Lila Wallace-Reader’s Digest Fund Arts International grant to study the history and production of murals in Italy.
