Saúl López Velarde

Oaxacan artist Saúl López Velarde is the founder of El Balcón, a participatory cultural platform in the Central de Abastos market in Oaxaca City where he took over a merchant stall and started working with the market community, including elementary students. Saúl sees his work, both as a teacher in the class as well as in the market, as the work of an artist.
