Santa Muerte

Santa Muerte

Spray paint on birch wood

This piece was created in 2020. The stencil was originally created for an art battle in Houston
where the theme was “Holiday”. I don’t subscribe to a lot of traditional Catholic holidays
wholeheartedly but I can relate to the celebration of death and to the change of seasons so I
created this. The colors are not characteristic of my work. They are drab, Winter colors. Summer
is my favorite season. This is a visual representation of an “Ice Queen ”, or “Summer
Killer”…based on a reference photo by a local photographer depicting La Santa Muerte. In the
end the image was too macabre for the “holiday” theme so it wound up on a beautiful piece of
birch wood:)
