Julio Soto Noyola ART
Julio Soto Noyola is an artist from Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. He began his career using his love for vibrant colors and patterns to embellish broken surfboards he had repaired. His creative designs attracted the attention of local and foreign surfers alike who began to seek him out to paint their new boards. His work has grown in popularity and he has been commissioned to create murals and other pieces for local businesses and travelers as well as creating the monthly cover design for Viva Puerto Magazine. His artwork draws inspiration from his Afro-Mexican cultural background, surf, and tattoo art. His bright whimsical designs can be seen around Puerto Escondido. We are thrilled he has created the artwork for this years’ Bahia World Music Festival, and to be able to bring this talented artist’s work to the people of Puerto Vallarta!
