“I have been creating Boruca masks since 2000. All of my pieces are unique because I put my heart and soul into every detail, which is why it takes me two to three days to complete a piece. I usually work with other artists, although sometimes I wander up into the mountains to take photos and find inspiration.”
Domingo’s work has a distinctive and uplifting boldness. For three years, he lived in Guanacaste, a beach tourist town, where he had the unique experience of running his own gallery. That gave him an expanded business perspective of what it takes to promote his own art. Domingo is studying to become an English teacher, so recently he has found it harder to find time to create his masks.
