...Symbols are metaphors encrusted in the psyche of all humans. Since the infancy of 
humankind, Artists have communicated using symbolic language to remind us about 
the connection that we all have with each other and Nature...
Victor Amor

ChimMaya is pleased to present the art work of Victor Amor and Ixchel Amor
'ChimMaya Resident'
artists.....and two artists that were in the first group exhibition in our 
gallery.  Their unique style, their blending of Mexican and European influences, and their   
passion with stretching the limits of their talent...has made them long time favorites of our 
collectors, and an incredible 'collaboration' that brings a significant vision to the Los Angeles 
Latino art scene.

Ixchel Amor
was born and raised in Mexico City until coming to the United States in 1985.   
Since her move to Los Angeles, Ixchel has been teaching Fine Arts in private institutions 
and art schools around Southern California. Together with her husband, Victor, she 
established Art Lyceum in Alhambra in 1999, where she is Creative Director. Ixchel has 
participated in numerous shows in and around Los Angeles and has continued to exhibit in 
her native country of Mexico.


Ixchel's artwork reflects her interest in the inner tensions of the spirit with its quest for 
knowledge, beauty and truth. She infuses her art with symbols, archetypes, patterns and 
sacred geometry with the intention of provoking unsettling feelings within a viewer that might 
spark a desire for change in his or her life.

Victor Amor
was born and raised in Mexico City until coming with Ixchel to the 
United States in 1985. During 1989-1991 he studied at the National Institute of Fine Arts, 
'La Esmeralda'.  Since 1989 he has participated in exhibitions in his native Mexico  and 
the United States....as well as being co-founder of the 'Art Lyceum' in Alhambra with his wife 
Ixchel.


Throughout the years of development as a sculptor, Victor has followed a traditional road in
which drawing has been the backbone of his work....allowing him the exhaustive study of 
two-dimensional mediums.  Through these mechanics, he has approached sculpture; where, 
an essential influence from the Mexican School and European Art has become his trademark.


Victor's
artwork is in residential collections and public spaces in several countries. Some of 
the projects he has developed include: jewelry (cameos, rings); theatrical masks; sculptures 
for stores (Disney Stores, Universal City Walk, The World of Coca-Cola); theme parks 
(Disneyland, Six Flags, Universal Studios); TV commercials (Mr. Peanut, Clorox); 
TV programs (Jeopardy); sculpture pieces for the The Tournament of Roses; as well as, 
architectural details for casinos (Paris Casino, Treasure Island, MGM Hotel Casino), and 
theme parks (Disney's California Adventure).
