Carlomagno Pedro

About the Artist

Carlomagno Pedro lives in the Oaxaca village of San Bartolo Coyotepec, where he was born in 1965. He is known in Mexico and beyond as the sculptor of figures and calaveras (skeletons) in the burnished black clay for which his village is famous. In this work he brings the same black humor to printmaking. Like his famous predecessor, Guadalupe Posada, Carlomagno uses a cast of calaveras (skeletons) and diablos (devils) as foils for his social and political satire. His work has been featured in shows at Galeria de la Raza in San Francisco and the Mexican Fine Arts Center Museum in Chicago, as well as numerous individual and group shows in Mexico.
