The Day of the Dead: El Dia de Los Muertos

The Day of the Dead: El Dia de Los Muertos Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A potent manifestation of Latino subculture in the U.S. as well as in Mexico, Day of the Dead art is hugely influential on the tattoo and kustom scenes. This collection emphasizes contemporary graphics, where traditional folk art and current U.S. politics and culture collide—Mexican traditions are mixed with Hollywood hip, or the graphic tags of L.A.'s Latino gangs. Bursting with amazing visceral energy and riotous color, this collection features vanguard artists taking traditional elements of sugar skulls, flowers, and devils right to the edge. It will be a fantastic source of inspiration for graphic designers, tattoo artists, hot rodders, and t-shirt designers.
