Melva Medina creates bronze sculptures of strong women with attention to detail that would be home to any museum in New York City. All of her works as well of her husband, Abel Vazquez, tell a story and are amazing. This is the real deal....More

I am not an art aficionado but the works in this gallery moved me. Melva Medina and her husband Abel Vazquez create from their hearts with a Latin/Mayan soul. Their art is innovative and unique. I am so glad to have visited this gallery!

We happened accidently on this gallery and had the good fortune to meet the artist-owners. Later we discovered their art at the Museum of the city of Merida, very challenging and beautiful.

The artist's & owners of Nahualli (Abel & Melva) are not only extremely talented but also engaged with their community and gracious hosts. No uppity art vibes at the gallery even though their work is of international fame.
