Enrique miguel de la Vega

Let me introduce myself. My name is Enrique de la Vega. I am an artist
and a practitoner in the art of the Sacred.
In a word, I create contemporary Sacred Art for churches,
shrines and sacred spaces.

Like my forbears in the tradition of Christian art, I am constantly learning
new ways of expressing the timeless, the universal and the Sacred.

My admiration for early Christian art forms, Celtic illuminations and the spirit
of the renaissance in artists like Giotto, Raphael and Michaelangelo, is boundless,
as is my love of God's natural creation that surrounds us.

It has been said that we live in the worst and in the best of times,
and it is a fact that ugliness and evil abound; tho beauty and sanctity will always prevail.

It is hope and faith that is the driving force in my work,
in the universe of the aesthetic,
and I attempt in some form  to express the inexpressible and to
inspire the soul to loftier heights in a world that hungers for beauty in
the Divine.


I was born, raised Catholic and educated in
Los Angeles California
as a third generation Los Angelino of Irish and
Hispanic descent,  tracing my roots back to Ireland,
Spain and Mexico.

With pride I claim many artists, poets and writers
in my ancient lineage, such as the
renowned Spanish renaissance poet,
Garcilaso de la Vega and his cousin the Inca historian
by the same name.

I received a Master of Fine Arts Degree
from the Los Angeles County Otis Art Institute.

For many years, I actively worked on commission
creating monumental contemporary Sacred Art for churches
throughout the country.
