Santa Muerte Music & Arts Festival!

I made a new piece just for this show. Such a great mix of artists here! I'm very happy to be part of this!

Santa Muerte Music & Arts Festival,
a two day event celebrating the folklore of the southwest showcasing some of the most important underground musicians and cutting-edge international visionary artists. This is a grassroots event created and inspired by artists and musicians.

ART: Twenty world-renowned artists from Scotland, Italy, Canada, and across the U.S. converge on Tucson at Sacred Machine. Participating artists work has appeared in and been commissioned by The New York Times, Juxtapoz Magazine, Hi-Fructose Magazine, Time Magazine, The Washington Post, LA Times, the Academy Award winning movie 'Traffic' by Steven Soderbergh, on multi-platinum album covers, illustrated children's books, published monographs, and advertising for clients such as Sony and Toyota. "These artists are so multi-talented that some even play in rock bands and create videos. With their work they have imbued apocalyptic prophecies, shaken the norms of conventional iconography and written books, museums and collectors such as Madonna acquire their work, they exhibit their art across the globe, some self-taught, some professors, some outsiders, but one thing is certain, the group as a whole has influenced, and is seriously rocking the art world." Paula Catherine Valencia, Curator of Sacred Machine.
