These are some of my Dia de Los Muertos Face and Body Painting

Collaboration with Alex Hansen in Los Angeles 2011

Dia de los muertos is an interesting celebration. Being mexican, I grew up doing altars every November 2nd and making poems about the way someone would die or how comic my death could be. Yes, a poem. The cemetery gets packed with people crying, or laughing or even celebrating with tequila, offering their loved ones favorite dishes, talking about their journeys together bringing objects, and even mariachi songs. So however, the sugar skulls and the muerto bred are traditional treats for Dia de los Muertos and specially the sugar skull and the colored designs have inspired the face paint practice so much. These are photos of what I have done in Los Angeles 2009 with this concept....
