Paper Traces
Inspired by Posada's work, this linocut surrounds the famous printmaker and his son with bizarre creatures, devils and hybrids, some taken directly from Posada's own prints. Among those identifiable here are his popular pedagogical character, Don Chepito Marihuano, who appears in the lower right, and his calaveras (skulls). The image of the two men is lifted from a rare surviving photograph. Many of Artemio Rodríguez's works owe a debt to Posada in both their formal qualities and their use of popular culture for social commentary.
