Aztec art was at the center of the Aztec empire during the 15th and 16th century. The imagery is an insightful view of what life was like back then, and it still holds so much information that continues to fascinate scholars.

While the art form is centuries old, it’s still very relevant to our culture, our history, and traditions, which is why a Latino artist is giving it a new life.

Artist Emmanuel Valtierra has launched a series of Aztec-style imagery that features some of today’s pop culture icons.

According to his website, Valtierra, was born in San Antonio, Texas and raised in Monterrey, México. He studied Graphic Design at the University of Nuevo Leon and Photography at San Antonio College.

Valtierra said he is using current references to introduce people to the historic art form.

“Many people outside Mexico didn’t even know it existed,” Valtierra told Remezcla. “I wanted to introduce art little by little to a new public, and there was no better way than to do it with images they will recognize easily, like video games, movies, and cartoons.”

Some of the pop culture references include Game Of Thrones, Day of the Dead, the Avengers, and Pokemon.

“The love Valtierra has for history has influenced him on all his projects,” his website states. “The goal is to keep teaching new generations about our past in a fun way in every media possible. In the future, Valtierra is planning to release more books, direct more videos, and work on more games for his public and followers.”

If you’re interested in his work, Valtierra also has some items for purchase.

The item above is an illustrated book ($38) in which, as Valtierra states, “recounts the events of the war that the Aztecs had against the Spaniards. Now imagine a world where the Aztecs had defeated the Spaniards. How would our world be different?”

This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soulmate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.”

Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.

Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.

Wendy Williams Got It All Wrong With Maluma So Twitter Came Through With Some Education

We all know that daytime talk show host Wendy Williams has plenty of drama going on in her own life. However, that didn’t stop her from letting it all out on her review of the Billboard Music Awards. Particularly, Williams tried to come for Maluma.

In her Hot Topics segment, Wendy came for both Madonna and Maluma who performed the single “Medellin” at the awards show.

First, she went for Madonna.

Like, why even say something like that? Madonna might not be the youngest artist out there right now but she is doing her thing and elevating Latin music artist to mainstream audiences.

Then she got it all wrong with Maluma.

After saying Madonna “moved like an old lady”, Wendy tried putting Maluma – who she thought was Madonna’s boyfriend – on blast. Williams was saying that he didn’t deliver during his performance with the Medellin singer. She was even confused because she thought Madonna’s boyfriend was supposed to be hot.

Wait up, Wendy. You did not.

Maluma is a hit-making singer in his own right and we are all luck to have him in our lives. Clearly, you haven’t taken any time to listen to the 25-year-old’s hit songs like “Corazón” and it shows.

Maluma is pure fire.

A few seconds later, Wendy switched gears. She puts a photo of the real-life sex god up on the screen and talks about how gorgeous he is before saying she thought he was Mariah Carey’s boyfriend.

Maluma + Madonna + Mariah? What the actual f*ck?

All of this happens before one of her cameramen has to step in to tell her who this beautiful man really is. It’s Maluma, baby. Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy. The same guy from the Madonna performance.

You’re welcome, Wendy. #smh

For someone who loves to stir the pot and act like a know it all, you really dropped the ball here. Maluma is someone we all know and love. If you don’t know him, you better learn. He is going to be around for a long time.

Perez Hilton is not having it.

Honestly, neither are we. She needs to make sure she and her team do some research before they try dragging people on air. Ignorance isn’t a cute look on you. This blatant disregard of one of reggaeton’s greatest icons is an absolute slap in the face.

If this wasn’t enough, for his first Met Gala outing, Maluma got no love on the pink carpet.

It was his first time there and he was absolutely working a stunning look. People rightfully pointed out that Maluma came to slay. The theme for the event was “Camp” and Maluma definitely slayed the challenge, showing up in a sparkly patterned Moschino suit.

Yet the getup didn’t seem to capture too many photographers attention.

As this actual footage of Maluma’s arrival clearly shows. Which left people, including us, completely puzzled. Like, how can you not pay attention to the Colombian singer that has captivated the hearts of millions? Unacceptable.

We the people are very pissed and heartbroken.

He came to slay and slay he did. It is time for everyone to take a moment and recognize Maluma’s Met Gala look for what it is, gold.

It was a traumatic experience that fans are being forced to relive over and over because of social media.

Who else is crying over it? The disrespect just seeps through the screen. Maluma deserves better. He is someone that needs to be respected and admired for his beauty and fashion choices.

ICYMI, here is the video of the beautiful and regal Maluma being ignored at the Met Gala.

This is a tragedy. Every photographer should be fired for not following through. He is a prince and deserves all of the spotlight we can give him.

A lot of people feel Maluma got cheated of his spotlight simply because gringos don’t know one of Latin America’s biggest stars.

Like there were literally dozens of men that completely failed the challenge. They didn’t channel the event’s theme of “Camp” in any way and instead showed up in basic black. But their photos are all over the place.

He’s got style, he’s got beauty, and he’s got talent. What more does society want from him?
