About The Artwork

This print is part of a series of 12 linocuts titled "Mexican Circus." They were inspired by my memories of Mexico while living in northern Thailand (2010-2014). At the time of making these (2011-2012) Mexico was in the midst of the drug wars and full of corrupt officials. The ridiculousness and surreality of it all reminded me of a circus, and especially of the Mexican circuses which I have always been extremely interested in. I wanted to create a series of elegant black and white prints which would walk the line between cute and slightly unnerving. I wanted to capture that feeling I had of being a Mexican expatriate who was both proud of his country and also embarrassed. This print is part of an edition of 30 plus 2 artist proofs. The printmaking studio where I created these works owns all the even numbered prints, therefore I only have the odd numbers for sale.

Luna grew up in rural Mexico, the son of a Mexican quantum chaos physicist and an American mother who taught, wrote, edited and translated. Part of his youth was spent in the United States. In California, he studied Cultural Anthropology and Art, specializing in printmaking at UCSC. As an adult, he has lived in Germany, Hungary, and Thailand. Each place has influenced his art and provided inspiration on his journey to find peace in paradox. His work has been sold worldwide in such countries as Thailand, Mexico, USA, Malaysia and Hungary. ARTIST STATEMENT My drawings are abstracted from various aspects of nature. Each of them is a prospective sculptural essence. They are conceived from enhancements, maturities, multiplications and intensification of forms. My main subjects are people because they are a world, a landscape, and an animal all bundled into one. My work is strongly inspired by the Mexican muralists whose murals I grew up seeing as well as by the delicate line-work which characterises Thai and much of Asian art. The American expressionists’ use of color and bold strokes are how my American side shows itself. Interested in becoming a Patron? Click here: https://www.patreon.com/nicolaslunaartist
