Isn’t it ironic that José Guadalupe Posada became well-known posthumously for his calavera folk art? ’Cause his satirical illustrations of skeletons are now associated with Día de los Muertos, which is the Mexican holiday for celebrating the dead? Or perhaps this writer is merely having an Alanis Morissette-circa-the-mid-’90s moment? Well, Posada’s influence continues to live long after his death, including in the work of Leonardo Ceballos. Check out his A Sigh for México art exhibition this month, and if chardonnay is served at the reception, watch out for flies.
