Consejo Grafico Nacional / Perro Mundo Portfolio

Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer, Rene Arceo Press, Poli Marichal Studio, Juan Fuentes, Taller Boricua, Ramiro Rodriguez/Riomar Studios, Coronado Press, Dignidad Rebelde, Pepe Coronado Press, SFernandez Press and Taller, Nopal Press, Self Help Graphics, Mono Grafico Colectivo
Perro Mundo Is a portfolio focused on transborder themes covering the extreme conditions produced by neoliberalism and the social responses that resist said conditions. A social and environmental context is the foundation for images of transformation and social rebellion. These are not Ovidian Transformations actualized by the gods or the mysterious occult forces of nature. Instead metamorphosis implies an otherness occasioned by historical and material events, although, as in Ovid, they are constructed with mythical agents. Although visualized with mythical aspects of the characters are concrete symbols that identify specific social struggles.
