Papel Picado with heart

juarez papel picado

I want to tell you about the papel picado work of Kai Margarida-Ramirez de Arellano. Some of her earlier work was a series of jazz artists (a fundraiser for the Outpost Performance Space). Cool stuff. She has shown her work here and will have a piece in an upcoming show in NYC. 

This piece addresses the killings in Juarez. It is a dark and ugly topic. I think this piece confronts the topic (a bit of gore) but also keeps it real and is not gratuitous. Stay tuned for updates and more art from Kai!
