Original Day of the Dead Mariachi
“The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity”. The Mexoskeleton Is a character I created who represents a person who lives life free from the fear of death and instead embraces its uncertain nature as a gift. A musician through his instrument creates a beautiful sound that resonates for a moment, but is ultimately fleeting just as life is.
This painting celebrates life and death while referencing on the day I was born, The Day of the Dead. The background is comprised of architecture from the city of Guanajuato in Mexico. This city has cultural significance to my identity since it the place where my grandfather is from.
The painting is on a 18″x24″ birch panel with acrylic and enamel. The rustic frame is custom built out of wood that has been stained and distressed and is adorned with brass tack details, it was inspired by the architecture of the city of Guanajuato. With the frame, the original work measures 25″x39″ total.
These are hand-signed, ready to hang, high quality Giclee inkjet reproductions nearly as beautiful as the original work. They are gallery wrapped around a 1.5″ stretcher bar frame, printed with archival pigment-based ink, and coated with a UV varnish that will extend the life of your art. Please allow up to two weeks for your prints to be shipped from the time ordered since custom stretcher bars must be made and the Giclee must be stretched at the time of the order.
These are hand signed, high resolution reproductions printed on glossy paper. Each print is wrapped in a clear sleeve and backed with a stiff foam board. Paper prints have a white border and are ready to frame since they come in a standard frame size.
