Rodolfo Morales

Morales is the second member of the Holy Trinity. He's officially considered a Mexican surrealist, but he worked in various media, mostly oils, but also photography, ceramics, collage, and weaving, among others. He single-handedly revived the village of Ocotlan after becoming well-known as an artist, establishing the Rodolfo Morales Cultural Foundation to restore local churches and set up classes for students in literacy and computers. His house, a five minute walk from the marketplace and the cathedral, is now the center of the foundation's activities while the convent next to the cathedral has been restored as a museum.
