A collection of Black and white images with a hispanic emphasis...

Here is an interesting site which has Hispanic roots. Honestly, I don't understand too much of what is written there, but you have a nice collection of Black and White images of biblical scenes drawn with a Hispanic audience in mind. I can't be sure, but I think the artist is Cerezo Barredo. If so, here is some bibliographic information taken from a pdf article issued by The Archdiocese of Seattle
Maximino Cerezo Barredo is a painter of the theology of liberation. He was born in Villaviciosa, Asturias in 1932. Entered the Congregation of the Claritian Missionaries in 1950 and was ordained a priest in 1957. He began to paint murals in his environments of apostolate: University Residences of Oviedo, Valladolid and Madrid, Colleges in Madrid and Lisbon, Chapel of Chateau- southern Marne and the Spanish Patronato in Paris. He exposed at the Spanish pavilion at the Expo in New York, collaborated in the II Exposition of Sacred Art in León, Spain, and was named a member of the National Commission of Sacred Art.

Pentecostes (Acts 2)


Here is another link where Cerezo Barredo tries to interpret Christ for a context relevant to him.
