Dead_PainterInternationally renowned Mexican Artist from Chetumal Quintana Roo Elio Carmichael Jiménez the author of the book Los Murales De Congresso, died early this morning after battling cancer for a number of years.


We report his death because Jimenez was a promoter of history and culture, including the Mayan Culture from the rise of the Maya, the conquest to the present day highlighting memorable episodes. We also report Jimenez’s death because he has ties to Orange Walk. His mother Valentina Jimenez is originally from Orange Walk and his family lived here for quite some years. In fact Jimenez studied at Saint John’s College in Belize City.

On Februarys 19th of this year when Jimenez was in a delicate state, the local Congress instituted the medal Cultural and Artistic Merit "Elio Carmichael," who was the first to receive it as tribute.

Elio Carmichael Jiménez participated in over 30 group exhibitions and held 10 personal exhibitions.
