Marcos Bautista is from Teotitlán del Valle in Oaxaca, Mexico, a community known for its Zapotec weaving. He grew up helping his family in their weaving business, often operating the standing loom. Marcos’ art combines his innovative designs with Zapotec patterns and techniques. He moved to Indiana after he married, and he continues to sell his textiles at art and craft fairs around the state. He remains close to his family in Oaxaca, often sending them new patterns of his own design and helping to sell his family’s creations.

Bautista will be an artist in residence at the Mathers Museum of World Cultures, demonstrating his art and discussing his work with visitors. The free demonstrations are presented in conjunction with Mexico Remixed, a program of IU’s Arts and Humanities Council.
