El Acecho

Indigo Arts has moved upstairs to a space on the fourth floor of the Crane Building.  I am still arranging things up here but I am open on a "by appointment or by chance" basis.  I am usually in the building from Wednesday through Saturday from 12 to 6, but it is definitely best to phone or email first. Meanwhile, the Indigo Arts online gallery is operating as usual.  
Please feel free to contact me with any questions in the mean time.

El Acecho - Carlomagno Pedro
SKU: CAP-8905

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.
