Wild…this year is quickly coming to an end and a great one is also quickly approaching.
I feel great about all the art I created in 2012. I do feel I could have done even more. I hope this year 2013 I exceed my expectations. I have some pretty awesome projects lined up for 2013. I have a couple in the next few days that I will be sharing as well. For now, here are my favorite pieces of 2012 so far from me series as Timoi, Killer Calo Series, India and Isabella Gottlieb.
This one is a collaboration with India, Timoi and Isabella Gottlieb painted at Kilometro Cero Galeria in the Palacio Nacional Guatemala.
This one, Bendita Maldicion (Blessed curse) was painted in an old army base in Xela, Guatemala. Some blessings come in the form of a curse. Here this character by India is being whispered stories by the Mayan Twins Hunahpu and Xlabanque. This is another collaboration between India, Timoi and Gottlieb…
This is another favorite by India. Siyah, which means black in Turkish. Siyah is a love name India gave one of her imaginary boyfriends. No matter which direction India took, there was Siyah…always on her mind.
This might be my most favorite by India. In a few words it depicts Orions belt, Betelgeuse, Venus, Milky way, Cerebral Spectrum, Mayan gods and the Creator. All very important aspects in the life of Mayan based on the Popol Vu and conversations with my people.
Gottlieb does not have much to show for, but this is my favorite thus far. A woman sitting naked on her couch having a glass of wine, pensive.
This one is a collaboration with Spaint EKS from Guatemala and Timoi from teh KC Series. This piece was dedicated to the Guatemalan Master Efrain Recinos and to the feminine spirit. This mural is located just block from the Palacio Nacional.
This one is a portrait of Model MJ Alvarez. I love this one especially because of the technique….you can really see the technique here. I also love this one because of the memory. The business owner threatened me to sue me if I continue to paint…haha…This was painted in Guatemala. I had the last laugh, since I knew the building owner.
I love this one because it depicts Day of the Dead for Guatemala. A slightly different tradition from the rest of Latin America. It is a Mayan tradition to fly kites. Kites are used to scare off evil spirits that come to bother our deceased and also to transmit messages to our ancestors. On this painting Calo is flying a kite in a cemetery she created where she summons her past loved one and some of her favorite people like Bruce Lee or Nikolas Tesla. The cemetery is located by the tree of life and the Milky way, which is believed to be the road souls take after death.
My lovely and gorgeous Holy Death.
My Altar for Day of the Dead created for the new Grand Park in front of City Hall in Los Angeles.
I don’t do much pieces, but I love this one.
Portrait of Ms. 3…I love her. I painted this on the floor…not bad…not bad.
OMG…my pollito….I didn’t know how cute a lil chick could be…One day I will have chickens as pets. They are so full of soul and love…how can anyone not see!!!
This is one of my favorite because of it’s location.
This is a digital piece. This is a character of Isabella Black Valentine, a black widow from England who migrated to the Mayan ruins in ancient times. Collects hearts in a jar. Some have gotten away but sooner or later she will have them…Isabella BV is a hermaphrodite originally from Ethenz who acquired the black widow traits on earth. More on her later…
I might do a blog on my favorite moments of 2012…maybe….
