"This piece was created for a release of a book "Farce" which is about narco violence. It tries to explain the utopic war with the government and the cartels. The concept of this piece is to try to explain in a simple form what happens in Mexico. Basically, the idea is a dance, like a ritual for a created lie. This piece highlights the lies the government tells us." - Saner

About the Artist

Location: Mexico City, Mexico

Edgar Flores “Saner” is an artist, muralist, professor, illustrator & graphic designer. Raised by his parents in Mexico City and surrounded by rich color and tradition, Saner developed an interest in drawing and Mexican Muralism early on. “I visited Oaxaca a lot when I was growing up because my mother is from there, and certain traditions which they carried out there, really caught my attention.” He began expressing himself on paper and through graffiti art, later going on to earn a degree in graphic design from the Universidad Autónoma de Mexico.

His lively & humorous images of masked characters on public walls, found objects and other canvases are influenced by Mexican folklore, by color, mysticism, masks, and skulls. A mix of these lifelong interests and passions have led him to become the artist he is today. “The masks that I use are traditional masks from Mexico.” The jaguars, coyotes, skulls, and other recurrent characters appear in my work because that parallel world is the real self, the real face“. In his images, Saner rediscovers Mexican iconography while reinterpreting it, mixing the traditional with the Contemporary. With an unpretentious spirit, Saner expresses a fresh Mexican vision that freely wanders between graffiti art, graphic design, painting and drawing.
