Shepard Fairey and Ernesto Yerena. From an edition of 15 Hand-Painted Original Mixed Media Pieces, each piece is unique. This piece measures 20" x 26".This piece is signed by Shepard Fairey and numbered out of 15. This is NOT a screenprint. It is just spray paint on rag art paper. Below, see commentary from Shepard Fairey regarding this piece. I was first encouraged by my friend, artist, and co-worker, Gerardo Yepiz, to make a Zapata print back in 1999. Gerardo grew up in Ensenada, Mexico, before moving to San Diego, and he educated me a bit about Emiliano Zapata. I was very inspired by Zapatas revolutionary efforts to implement land reform and improve the economic prospects for peasant farmers in Mexico, plus, Zapata had a bad-ass look! In 2006 when I began working with Ernesto Yerena, he mentioned that my Zapata poster was one of his favorites, but unfortunately, I didnt have any left that I could give to him. I have worked with and collaborated with Ernesto for many years and it has been amazing to see him develop and flourish as an artist and activist.
Ernesto is a technical perfectionist, so when he proposed producing a small hand-stenciled edition of the Zapata image through his Hecho Con Ganas studio, I knew it could be really cool and special. Ernesto also suggested that we could benefit CIELO, a local organization that is assisting undocumented indigenous families.
I thought that was a great idea. The Zapata pieces are all slightly different stencil paintings. There is NO SCREEN-PRINTING, just spray paint on rag art paper.
