Juan Manuel Garcia WOODCUTS

Juan Manuel Garcia is an artist and writer who is part of the “affordable art” movement – these prints were displayed in the format of a “tendero”, a shopkeeper, and priced at $100 MXN per print, less than $8 USD.  His work covers personal as well as traditional themes, and as you see the woodcuts are strong and vibrant.  If you want to buy a few let me know and we´ll figure out how to ship them.  This exhibition was sponsored by El Pasillo A.C. community arts center, which is involved in all sorts of arts promotion and production including interchanges between artists in Tijuana,  Zacatecas and Los Angeles CA, and lots of expositions around Mexico.
