Jaime Zapata Espinoza creates masks inspired by his profound Peruvian roots. 'My objective is to transmit human emotions in seemingly animated objects. I use recycled paper and textiles, cans, and some vegetal elements like rushes. Colors are given with natural oxides and earths. To decorate my pieces I also use hand-woven elements with Inca motifs,' explains the artisan, who has exhibited his work in Peru, Germany and Japan.
