My Local Hero...

Manuel Lepe is my local hero, a wonderful artist and person with the soul of a child, all of us who live in Puerto Vallarta cherish his legacy and do what we can to keep it alive. I find myself inspired and cheered up every time I look at any of his pieces, it is the paradise we all want to live in.
Born in PV in 1936, through his paintings, considered within the "Naif" style, he became one of the greatest promoters of the PV area in the world, President Luis Echeverría named him "The painter of México". His work is in museums and Galeries around the world and the exhibit he set up in Los Angeles in 1979 brought more than one million visitors to our blessed town.
