"Grabado de linoleo" or linocut printing, a variant of woodcut where designs are carved onto linoleum instead of wood, became popular in the 20th century for its ease, cost-effectiveness, and availability. This technique has deep roots in Mexico, dating back to the pre-Columbian period when indigenous people created designs on amate bark paper. Over time, European techniques influenced Mexican printmaking, with artists like Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and José Clemente Orozco establishing it as a crucial art form. Today, in the southern states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, linocut is widely used by artists to express their cultural heritage and address social and political issues. These regions have a strong tradition of graphic arts, and their linocut prints often feature vibrant colors, bold designs, and themes from daily life, indigenous culture, and nature. This tradition of using art for social and political expression is long-standing in Mexico and is prominently reflected in the works from Chiapas and Oaxaca.

20,5w x 28h cm, linocut print, black & white.
