I have been pretty busy, you guys. So much so that I have not been able to tell all of you about our amazing times in Mexico City and Oaxaca. I would like to tell you about them right now!
Guru Galeria was kind enough to invite me to come visit Mexico City and create a solo exhibition back in February of this year. It was a bit of a retrospective show as I brought prints and paintings from past projects. I did create some new artwork inspired by Mexican culture. Cha and Nadia from Guru were incredible hosts. They showed Susie and I all the sweetest spots and we quickly understood how wonderful Mexico City is. I would like to return on a regular basis if I can figure out how to do it.
I did a few interviews while I was there, one was even on the television set! I spoke with Centro De Cultura Digital in front of a live studio audience during their festival. It was a real fun chat! You can watch it HERE!
Here are some of the pieces I created for the show along with some photo memories for you…
We met Soledad through Guru Galeria and she invited me to Oaxaca for the Día Mundial del Arte Oaxaca in April to conduct a comic book storytelling workshop for the children. It was an amazing experience! I do not speak Spanish, so it made for an interesting workshop with the help of the amazing translators. The stories were super cute, man. Everyone came away with some pretty great little books. And the stamp museum in which the workshop took place was beautiful. It was called the MUSEO DE FILATELIA DE OAXACA and it was a splendidly inspiring place.
