Whimsical Comic Characters in Elegant, Artistic Paintings by Jose Emroca Flores

Jose Emroca Flores is the artist behind these whimsical yet elegant paintings.  Each piece has a fascinating story portrayed by comic and surreal characters that could only come out of a talented, imaginative mind.  Take this one titled  El Cuco’s Advice.  Yeah, it’s a comic story of a sage rooster giving its wisdom to a bewildered traveler.  Clever, huh?

Okay, I made it up… 🙂

But you got the idea — each painting has comic characters and a story to tell.
