Known as “*Denver’s Dean of the Dead”, Local, national, and internationally exhibited artist Jerry Vigil, is a self-taught Chicano artist, who creates Santos art (Saint making) and Muertos style art (Day of the Dead/El dia de los Muertos) as a statement of culture. The two styles, both set within a known and sometimes rigid formula, are at opposite ends of a cultural spectrum. Jerry’s creative process contemporizes the styles by incorporating modern materials, design and humor. Jerry's artwork has appeared on the cover of "Marketing Review and Denver’s"Westword", inside Lowrider Arte magazine, Denver Magazine and 5280 magazine. Jerry is a profiled artist in the 2005 ASU/Bilingual Press Publication "Triumph of our Communities: Three decades of Mexican American Art". Jerry is also a co-author of a book on El dia de los Muertos crafts. Jerry has also received the "Westword's Best of Denver" for three years running and a "Best of Santa Fe Drive" for the last two years. Jerry has lectured on his art and art topics at major Colorado colleges, has Santos pieces in the Regis Santos teaching collection as well as artwork in the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Museo de las Americas.
