This watercolor on 20 x 30cm cotton paper depicts Helaman 6:4-5. The artist illustrates the Lamanites preaching to the Nephites in the Land of Zarahemla after their conversion. Israel Trejo Huerta was born on May 1, 1989 in Delicias Chihuahua city in northern Mexico but grew up in a town called Meoqui for which he always had great appreciation and love for nature, culture and indigenous peoples.
During his childhood he won a painting contest at the national level at only 5 years old. He began to develop the ability to draw; however, there wasn't much opportunity for artistic education in his town, so he developed his talents independently. When he returned from his full-time mission he studied at the Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Chihuahua. During his five years there, he discovered his love of painting. Since then he has participated in both national and regional exhibitions.
He is now happily married with a child of just 1 year old. He enjoys his work an art instructor. Much of his art focuses on his personal principles and beliefs, which is why his goal is to reach thousands of homes with his paintings and to help preach the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Submitted to the 2020 Book of Mormon Central Art Contest.
