We mainly use, paper, fabrics, metal, paints, patinas and lacquer, thus insuring unique objects, finished with wax and pigments.We use the collagetechnique to perform our objects. This are: small pieces of paper cut by hand to create the layout of each object and leave the imprint of the hand made. In this sense, every object is unique and has been made based on this principal.In some pieces the technique is developed on objects with wooden base and in the case of the tapestries they are made on basis of Kraft paper. Painting is not used, but rather is work with the original colors of the paper. In all cases the objects are finished with the patinas wax technique.Enjoy the world of Arte de Origen. « less

From Pablo's respectful and patient help in selecting our made-to-order purchase, demonstrating... More

We visit Cabo yearly....and I always stop by the store and find something new and interesting. Lovely gallery, delightful staff and interesting art pieces create the trifecta for this boutique. I have had pieces shipped home and Hugo stays involved to ensure that everything arrives safely and meets expectations.

I visit Cabo san Lucas once a year and never miss an opportunity to visit this store. There is never any pressure to buy, and some years I just look... but this year I bought a wonderful muneca made of paper mache and some fabric. I look forward to visiting again next winter. For those of you who are interested... More

In October 2013, my husband and I purchased a glass sculpture from Hugo at Arte de Origen in Cabo San Lucas. The sculpture was fairly large and delicate and had to be shipped to our home in Canada. Unfortunately, the original sculpture that we ordered was damaged during shipping. Hugo notified us of this delay by email and promptly offered... More

Let's keep it simple here: 1. Visit Arte de Origen if you're a lover of unique, hand made, exclusive indigenous art work. 2. Go straight to Hugo. Very professional artisan who really gets to know 'what you're looking for'. What a great experience while in Cabo San Lucas. 3. Internationally insured shipping is standard with your art work. Arrived promptly... More

The shop offered magical art objects connected to indiginous people and place evoking native naive and natural elements. Veronica was not only incredibly informative but pleasant and welcoming. I recommend highly the shop and its unique art.

We happened upon this art shop in the mall in Cabo San Lucas during our recent visit. We loved the art immediately. There are no two pieces the same because each one is designed and handmade by one of eight artists. I bought a beautiful mirror, white with a floral border. Absolutely gorgeous!
