    (11) Can papel picado be found in the fine arts?


    San Salvador Huixcolotla is home to artisans who hand make papel picado in small workshops. As these artists moved, they took their craft with them. Papel picado is the basis of Pedro Ortega Lozano’s art. He is among “The Great Masters of Mexican Folk Art,” 150 artist selected by a foundation sponsored by Banamex (Agar).
