Artist's description:

Mexican Warrior was created as a tribute and study of primitive and folk art. The inspiration came from a legend of two volcanoes that I heard while I was in Mexico. The piece was mostly done in permanent marker, crayon, colored pencil, and oil pastel drawn directly onto the paper with the exception of parts of the figure’s headdress. I used watercolors on watercolor paper to make the big feathers and the smaller side ones closer to the figure’s head are made with transparent sticky paper tabs. I aimed to use simple shapes to reflect the primitive art style. I incorporated some produce commonly used in Mexico as well as bright and vibrant colors to show the culture surrounding the legend. The figures were based on a figurine that I saw in Mexico.
