The painter Ralf Walter, who was born in Dessau, left East-Germany and went to West Germany, then to New York City and further on to Mexico. More than 30 years ago he has discovered the sleepy fisherman village Chicxulub Puerto on the Gulf of Mexico together his wife who had sadly passed away. Behind his little mexican house with the turquoise window-shutters, his studio is hidden in a palm grove. Ralf tells us how the native weavers and their handling of colors had influenced him in his style and especially in the usage of color.

Thanks to Martín, whom we met randomly. Vis-à-vis he runs a small repairshop for car chassis and he has insisted on presenting us to his ‘Amigo Ralf’. © B. G.
