Arburola’s work is similar to the distinctive style of Naif art that originated on the small island of Solentiname and is linked to Nicaragua’s turbulent political history. Much of Arburola’s work was showcased in the 1980’s during the Sandinista regime . His work shows peasants or campesinos at work, prosperous and in idealist settings. Many of these utopian images (present in Nicaraguan art during in the 1980’s) were used by the Sandinistas to instill their own political agenda. Much of the art produced during this time reflected the hope and aspirations for a new Nicaraguan society that would be born from the ashes of it’s oppressive and brutal elitist past.

Today, little is known of contemporary Nicaraguan art. Even at the height of its renaissance that was mostly fueled by optimism and utopian ideals, it’s true potential was doused by strained relations with the United States and their embargo against Nicaraguan goods during the Reagan administration.
