Mask Artist Painter - Boruca, Costa Rica

Francisco Rojas Morales, Boruca Artist

“I was a student with Don Ismael. Thanks to him, I was able to visit the Selby Gardens exhibit many times to share my art with many different kinds of people.”

Francisco is one of the most accomplished painters and treats his masks like 3-D canvases in which colors flow naturally without any pre-planning. He enjoys taking his time to patiently make each little detail just right. During his visits to Selby he had the opportunity to mingle with and exchange painting techniques with local artists.
