Man painting at Xico

Graphic Art Exhibition: Sergio Sánchez Santamaría

April 19th – July 5th
MEET THE ARTIST: April 19th, 5:30-8 PM – Come see Sergio Sánchez Santamaría printmaking and speaking on his artistic journey. See you then! 

Come witness the magic in Xico’s latest curated exhibition featuring master printer Sergio Sánchez Santamaría. Thirty elaborate prints will unveil a deeper look into the culture, traditions and symbols that yell out “Rebelion!”

He is a lithographer, master printer, illustrator of album covers, and label designer for mezcal and tequila distillates. He is a visual artist specializing in graphic art. This is only part of his work, this exhibition focuses mostly on linoleum relief prints and some lithographs.

Santamaría says, “This time I made a selection of pieces that had not been seen together. The themes that are constant in my work are Mexican heritage, the contemporary world contrasting the pre-Hispanic past with modernity. This is not social criticism, nor are they hollow pre-Hispanic concepts, rather they are visual allegories existing. Sharp observations of how society moves where injustices and social clamors are observed. My work travels from the anecdote to the uneasiness about the current world we live in, where humanity is losing sensitivity.”
