Roberto Ferreyra (Chicago, USA): Calavera Festiva, 2008

Calavera Festiva (festive skeleton). This skeleton, which is moving to the rhythm of the music, is accompanied by a six-legged dog. The skeleton has a tequila bottle on his hands and wears a baseball cap. It may be that the tequila has already produced its effects and the skeleton is celebrating the victory of his favorite team. Or maybe he is lamenting a loss which is something we do not know. At the end this skeleton is smiling and enjoying life.

His works have also appeared in many art magazines from Mexico and other countries.
