Wood carving of a bench in Costa RicaCOSTA RICA ARTISTS, PAINTERS, SCULPTORS, PHOTOGRAPHERS
Costa Rica artists, painters, sculptors, photographers, video artists can be just another classic story of the starving artist. This small country is getting more recognized for its artistic talent, with online stores now selling Costa Rica art.   In its laid-backed setting, Costa Rican artistic growth was practically nonexistent a decade ago, but no more. The amazing forests of Costa Rica engender a strong artisan culture of wood working.

Costa Ricans take a strong interest in their pre-Columbian art, which includes large stone statues from the Pacific northwest of the country, exquisitely carved stone spheres (probably cemetery markers) from the Pacific southwest region, and fine figurines of gold and jade. The fine arts have seldom flourished in Costa Rica, but they have received some impetus from government support, particularly with the creation in 1970 of the Ministry of Culture, Youth, and Sports. Painting, sculpture, and music all showed considerable development in the latter part of the 20th century.
