As you all know, we're about to hit Mexico City hard (in a good way) with the Autumn Society's "THE ICONOCLASTIC DEAD," with our second international show, this time in Mexico City. This show has been an absolute dream come true for me. To be surrounded by friends, fellow artists, and special guest artists that I respect and look up to. On that vein, it my pleasure to present to you another one of our very special guests, Alberto Cerriteno.
Here's a description of Alberto's piece, "El Catrín" from his blog
"My piece entitled "El Catrín" represents the namesake urban legend from a little old town in Guanajuato, Mexico called San Juan de Dios where locals claims to have seen the ghost of this elegant man who made suicide around the third decade of the 20th century. The story says he killed his wife and then regretted hanged himself and to these days you could see him walking around in a park of the same town looking for his lost love. Nowadays in Mexico the word "Catrín" is a synonym for an elegant and dressed up man."
