The art show was founded by Diego Costa Peuser. Costa Peuser has dedicated 30 years of his life to exposing Latin American art to the world.
With political and econommic stability in Latin America has come an art boom--both in terms of art created and in terms o demand for that art.
Pinta has changed some things for the 2013 fair. There will be five curatorial platforms: PINTA Galleries, PINTA Emerge, PINTA Centro, PINTA Video and PINTA Forum.
