Mexican muralist Quetzal Fuerte has been selected as the official artist of the 2022 Latin GRAMMYs — and his work has been commemorated with the Latin Recording Academy's first-ever NFT drop.
The 2022 Latin GRAMMYs are right around the corner, on Nov. 17 — and now we have a taste of its unique visual flair.
On Oct. 20, the Latin Recording Academy announced that Mexican muralist Quetzal Fuerte has been selected as the official artist of the 2022 Latin GRAMMYs.
Approaching this year's official Latin GRAMMY artwork with a fresh lens, Quetzal's mural for The Latin Recording Academy reflects his distinct, vibrant style, and capturesthe energy of Latin music through the use of colors.
The mural is on display in Morelia, Mexico, and a sister piece will soon be created at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles in November, in an effort to provide access to art and local enthusiasm for the upcoming Latin GRAMMYs.
Additionally, Quetzal's work will be featured prominently on collateral materials and as an exclusive NFT before and during the 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards.

"I am grateful to The Latin Recording Academy for inviting me to join them in crossing a new frontier together through the creation of this mural in Morelia," said Quetzal Fuerte. "Art is nourishment for the soul, whether it's visual or through sound, and through this piece we have the opportunity to impact and transform the lives of those who see it here locally or in its digital form, planting seeds of thought and emotion that will hopefully inspire future creators."
"The Latin Recording Academy is proud to continue its tradition of supporting emerging artists, like Quetzal, whose vision so brilliantly captures the essence of our 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards," said Manuel Abud, CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. "His murals and accompanying free NFT mark a series of firsts for us at The Latin Academy, as we bridge music and visual art to make both accessible to fans around the world."
For the official artwork of the 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards and accompanying mural, the artist shows a variety of musical instruments to illustrate the multifaceted Latino experience through the juxtaposition of bright and dark colors.
In partnership with OneOf, the leading Web3 platform for music, lifestyle brands and sports, The Latin Recording Academy will host the first-ever NFT collection tied to The Latin GRAMMY Awards with a series of drops celebrating Latin music through a collection of NFTs debuting with Quetzal's artwork.
The first NFT in the series is available free on OneOf's website for Latin GRAMMY enthusiasts. Users that claim the free NFT will unlock airdrops of exclusive content from the 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards.
Quetzal Fuerte describes himself as an urban acupuncturist — but instead of using needles, he uses paintbrush to bring healing to the pressure points of cities. Thus, he covers blank spaces with colorful, allusive art that depicts the highs and lows of modern life while providing residents with moments of respite.
The Latin Academy will host the 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards on Thursday, November 17, 2022, from the Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
