In the parlor of their colonial home, Medina’s bronze sculptures sit next to white sofas and the vivid, surrealist-inspired paintings by Vázquez hang salon-style. Their sunny studio lies in a patio beyond an elaborate iron grille.


Yucatán Today

When you enter the home/studio/gallery/art workshop/cultural event setting known as Nahualli Casa de Artistas, you immediately know you have entered a very special place. The walls are full of paintings and tapestries, the tables are full of sculptures. The air is full of warmth, creativity, and energy.

The humble facade of the gallery opens onto an outdoor space and with a lot of style. Sumptuous tiles pave the floor of the gallery, as in most meridanas houses.



Nahualli is a welcoming space, a colonial house that welcomes the visitor and presents it with paintings, drawings and sculptures, all belonging to Medina and Vázquez, as well as some more works by guest artists.

hands, eyes and soul that create art touching the most indifferent person. We spent some hours chatting and admiring their work. So gentle person passing a very powerful message through her creations about what is important in life.
