Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

With his music, words and images, Sergio Arau has inspired me to create a series of paintings that feature him as the main character in my painted movies. Rock Star, actor, director, screenwriter, and artist Sergio Arau has often performed while wearing gear honoring Mexico's most famous wrestling star El Santo (The Man In the Silver Mask). Known as lucha libre, Mexican wrestlers such as El Santo are defenders of the poor and vulnerable. By taking on the persona of the Luchador (wrestler), Josh Kun writes in Audiotopia: Music, Race, and America, Sergio Arau and his bands have mixed "the traditional with the contemporary, the rural with the urban, the American with the Mexican, the charro with the rockero."


"Flor De Asfalto ( Sergio Arau)" carries the musician into a Los Angeles seemingly pulled from the lyrics of his songs or gathered from scenes of his films that were left on the cutting room floor.


Gracias Sergio!



"Flor De Asfalto ( Sergio Arau)" was, in true rock n' roll fashion, in a completely unaffiliated, and unofficial satellite exhibition of: Año de México en Los Ángeles / Mexico in Los Angeles 2017
