While doing some huipil related research on Pinterest, I stumbled on The Royal Art Lodge. Wow! Their work was so entertaining that I couldn’t concentrate on anything else. The Royal Art Lodge was a group of Canadian artists who met once a week to collectively make small scale drawings and paintinngs. Founded in 1996, they disbanded in 2008.
Their absurdist paintings are a kind of happy Gothic full of humor and wit. During the six years they collaborated together, The Royal Art made a remarkably huge collection of art so full of energy and charm that it makes me smile.
