Kraken. Mexico City, 1980.
With a dark style, Kraken already have a few years as an Illustrator
A couple of months ago Kraken presented Ánimas at Upper Playground Mexico, the second part of his first solo show called Fantasmas, which was presented last year at Hold Up Art in Los Angeles. Ánimas, is his first solo show in Mexico City. A serie of screen prints and drawings was presented on this exhibition, a must seen for this winter days.
It’s been a while since Kraken showed his work in the streets. After a couple of years working on a studio behind a computer, he’s ready to come back and show us his deepest thoughts and feelings through his Kraken.
“En las primeras notas, fantasmas, espíritus, almas, emociones vueltas animal y a su vez animales vueltos emociones rindiendo culto a divinidades desconocidas, primitivas con las almas convertidas en cuervos y la ansiedad convertida en ojos, Lo emocional vuelto animal, lo etereo convertido en salvaje.
Seres carentes de emociones invocan ánimas, las emociones son fantasmas, te persiguen, las olvidas, las exorcizas.”
