During his art residency with the MAMUTT Art Project in Mexico City, Argentine street artist EVER created an intricate and mesmerizing screen-print called November 19,1910. The print is meant to exemplify Mexico, drawing on some of the themes he studied during his stay there—issues related to Mexican history and culture.
EVER immersed himself in research, attending lectures, visiting museums, and developing correspondence with historians and artists, in order to create his new print. The prints were produced by the masters of the craft at Cabiros Workshops in Mexico City using the “drift” method, a process where several prints are produced, each one different from the next, meaning that from the outset his work involves “political rhetoric.”
“November 19, 1910 is a mixture of mythological and historical processes, i.e., is a work that alters the reality of an event. Man justifies his actions via a higher power that commands it. His future is decided by a deity. What if we say, then, that one of the most important social movements of the 20th century (the Mexican Revolution) was due to the appearance of Xinolen, protector of corn and fertility? An Aztec goddess that night and day takes care of the most important food of Mexico, corn, and tries to tell the working people that the future is full of obstacles, but that in reality we ourselves have created them. November 19, 1910 is more than a screen print, it is a metaphysical account of human ideals,” EVER says of his piece.
There are 35 editions of November 19, 1910, each a four layer, hand-pulled screen print, hand-painted and signed by EVER.
To support the Mamutt Project, November 19, 1910 will be sold exclusively through Street Art News’ store for $132.60.
