Javier de la Garza is one of the most premier artists of the current plastic arts or `Neo-Mexicanism’, which has arisen in Mexico in the middle of the Eighties. This new artistic manifestation has great influence of the symbolism that represents the Mexican nationalism of that time.

In these new plastic arts, artist Javier de la Garza, offers an exhibition of 13 oil paintings on fabric, through which he invites us to view the reflection about the necessity of incorporating values that can influence climatic changes, evoking animal images which are in danger of extinction.
