Bicho I and Bicho II, limited editions by Ediciones Marea + Darío Escobar, continue Escobar’s series of works involving an investigation of formal and conceptual aspects of objects and their function in visual arts. He famously uses common and mass-produced materials in conjunction with traditional Guatemalan artisanal techniques and mythological references.Often combining past and present, Escobar looks for ways to show how the artistic experience of Guatemala’s history and its religious symbols are related to or overlap with the visual culture of today.
