About the Artist

"Manuel Lepe Macedo (b. April 17, 1936 Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. - d. Sept 9, 1984 Guadalajara, Jalisco) Manuel Lepe was a Mexican artist who painted in a Naïve style, painting mostly themes based on the landscape and townscape of his native Puerto Vallarta.

Lepe was never formally trained as an artist, and attended only four years of primary school.[1] His paintings came to symbolize the resort town during the years that it was becoming popular as a resort destination. Lepe became internationally known, with exhibitions of his work in several US museums and galleries.

He was named Mexico's national artist by president Luis Echevarría Álvarez in 1979. He died in 1984 in Guadalajara from a cerebral aneurysm. His workshop in Puerto Vallarta is preserved as a gallery and museum. Some of his works are on display there as well as at the Peter Gray Museum of Art on the Coastal Campus of the University of Guadalajara, North of Puerto Vallarta.

April 17 is celebrated in Puerto Vallarta as Manuel Lepe day."
