Viva Zapata

Emiliano Zapata was one of Mexico’s most iconic Revolutionary leaders and also my Grandfather’s hero. He was a gunslinger who rode with Poncho Villa and formed the Liberation Army.  Followers of Emiliano were known as “Zapatistas”.  This is a portrait representing Zapata as a skeleton and depicts how he will live on through the ages in the stories that are told of him and the Mexican Revolutionaries.



Original Zapata Painting

Viva Zapata is painted with many layers of acrylic on a smooth birch panel and measures 8″x10″.  It was then outlined with a glossy enamel to help enhance the form and separate it from the background a technique commonly found in animation cells and comic book illustrations.  Viva Zapata comes in an ornate gold leaf frame that was made in Mexico bringing the total size to 13″x15″.  This is a great piece for anyone who loves Mexican culture,  historical figures, la raza, or Day of the Dead art.  Although the original painting has sold paper and canvas print options are still available.   

Canvas Prints

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.

Paper Prints

These are hand-signed museum quality prints with pigment based inks printed on archival, 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.
