Father of the Catrina | A folk-art Hero From Mexico
Born in a small town located in Aguascalientes, Mexico on February 2, 1852. As a boy, Posada was educated by his older brother Cirilo, a “campesino” school teacher. Cirilo taught his younger brother how to read, write, and draw. This small but significant bit of education would prove to be a critical asset to Posada as he matured to become a Mexican political printmaker and engraver. Posada’s work has influenced many Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and skeletons to make political and cultural critiques.
