Latin American art is the combined artistic expression of South America, Central America, the Caribbean, and Mexico, as well as Latin Americans living in other regions.
The art has roots in the many different indigenous cultures that inhabited the Americas before European colonization in the 16th century. The indigenous cultures each developed sophisticated artistic disciplines, which were highly influenced by religious and spiritual themes.
Their work is collectively known and referred to as Pre-columbian art, this art then mixed with other cultures brought from outside by their new inhabitants, the arrival of African slaves and their European masters has resulted in a unique mestizo blend that can be seen not only in Art but music styles, languages, dances, and traditions.
