SIGNED AND LIMITED EDITION OF 20 COPIES. Marcos López (Argentina, 1958) Documentalist, plastic artist and one of the most recognized contemporary photographers, reflects through his images the values and symbols that govern the popular life of Latin America with a mixture of homage and humor about the expressions of culture, from Patagonia to the bars on the northern border of Mexico. From his work Pop Latino (Latin Pop) and his identity as a South American artist, López says: “I feel that Latin America belongs to me. I appropriate the immense America in a Bolivarian gesture. I am a transvestite, black, mestizo, Indian, native people, and grandson of European immigrants, all at the same time. I am a shaman. A Gypsy used car salesman in the great Buenos Aires. A Cuban Santero, and a table dancer from the darkest bar in Mexico City”. It would be no exaggeration to say that Argentine Photography of the nineties began in 1993, when Marcos López completely revolutionised the use of colour and began a series that would come to be known as “Pop Latino”. This claim is based on the key role played by López’ work in a number of movements which are now considered definitive.
