This is such very sad news.  Prayers for his family.  
Such an incredible talent has been lost.

Is this the guy who is similar to Hector Vari, in that he specializes in painting walls and the outside of buildings with landscape scenes?


According to the people I have asked, it is the famous Oscar who paints mural scenes.


Stunning! Absolutely stunning! Certainly doesnt seem like he paints controversial subjects that would enrage someone.

He was so talented. How tragic. So hard to believe anyone would want to harm him. He wasn't political.

According to the news story they shot him 10 times outside his house, which sounds targeted.  But who knows with the news reports we get?

Very sad to say the least. He was just so talented and still so young. . Yes it was targeted done by a armed command at his house in Miramar . We may never know the reason behind it.

Oscar painted the simple rustic colonial style wooden signs for our little language school years ago.

Yes, it's getting uglier and uglier and closer and closer. But, if ever the killers are caught - we should all hug them and bless them for their kind deeds.

Me, after 15 years here, I'm thinking about selling.

And there is nothing to stop or slow it down.
The Policia are corrupt and Amlo says give the cartels HUGS.
Even when an attempt is made to capture drug dealers, they are let go and even told when the raid is.
Killing families and kids is just a problem for a week.
How many have been killed in this area the last two years, 30 or more? No one knows for sure.
Even taking over another's property is not unusual and unless you kill the squatters, nothing will be done.
BUT it is CHEAP living so if it happens to someone else, we all will still go to listen to music and go for the $1 tacos and beer.

How sad.  I have one of his paintings hanging in my home.  We met him while he was doing a painting at Soggy Peso one sunny afternoon-transitioning to a sunset.  He was doing another painting and had this one for sale.  I paid him what he asked for, as it was beautiful to my wife & I, we felt it captured the essence of the sunsets in San Carlos.  He was very proud of it, we visited awhile.  He was a happy person, enjoying his work.  


I have shared a photo of it.  Anyone else have a painting they would share in memorial to a local Artist?
