Mainor Chacon

Artists J-Z > K-M
Born in Coto Brus on the south pacific of Costa Rica, sculptor Mainor Chacón was always in direct contact with nature, which he studied and later shared his knowledge to the delight tourists during his 20-year occupation as a tour guide. But having been enamored with art since his youth, Chacon chose a different path in 2007.
It was then that he started wood carvings in Imbabura, Ecuador, where he had his first contact with a branch of the famous-style of Escuela Quiteña (the Quito School, the style of artist expression born in Ecuador during the Columbian era. Since then Chacón has ventured into many different techniques, from classic to rustic.
Currently living in Guanacaste province, Chacón uses recycled materials working maintaining a strict respect for a sustainable environment. Drawing directly on the material and knowledge derived from nature, he develop his own designs ranging from animals to human figures, and sometimes abstract shapes as he continues to define himself.  Shown below are "Jungle Animals," and "Seahorse Reef."
