Oaxaca: Gabinete Grafico, 2014. 1st ed. Sixteen 11x15 in. prints New The first of two print portfolios that pay homage to the thriving woodcut printing scene in Oaxaca, which came to international attention in the aftermath of the 2006 protests. From political activism came forth a new generation of young printmakers who were tuned into the social, cultural and political realities of contemporary Mexico, using their repertoire of images and slogans to produce a popular form of art from a centuries old technique. While this art was born and bred in the streets--as grafitti and stencil art--this portfolio marks a new stage in the development of Mexican graphic arts and printmaking. The sensibilities acquired from producing art clandestinely shows in the selection and use of images. One image features the bust of Mexican drug lord "El Chapo" Guzman while another depicts the 43 who went missing in Guerrero, Mexico on the right-hand side of vengeful looking deity. Artists include: Irving Herrera, Gilberto Loera, Javier Arjona, Aaron Lopez, Roberto Garcia, Carlos Santa Cruz, Cesar Chavez (founding member of ASARO), Maria Sukuri, Leo Rodriguez, Diana Morales, Mario Guzman, Roberto Rodriguez, Daniel Acosta, Antonio Dominguez, Sergio Ricaño and Victor Hernandez. Some of these artists were members of art collectives such as ASARO and Arte Jaguar, who printed work as a collective never signing individual names or noting editions.Comes with a small bottle of mezcal and shot glass (Item ID: 168268)
