DESCRIPTION: This impressive exhibition features close to 30 works showcasing a selection of large and small paintings, plus several drawings.  According to Vallejo, “The overall theme uniting this work is a positive, optimistic view of humanity and our quest for meaning”.  He also shares: “The main focus of my work centers around mythological ideas that motivate us to maximize our potential.
