Flight (2 of 13) was created near the time of the unveiling of a mural at the Cisneros Tire Service, 800 Division Ave S, Grand Rapids, MI 49507, September 3, 2022. The mural was part of the 49507 Project of the Diatribe, https://thediatribe.org/ The artist, Alynn Guerra, is pictured standing below the mural’s central figure.
The figure on the tire swing refers to works of José Guadalupe Posada Aguilar whose Wikipedia entry reads, in part:
“José Guadalupe Posada Aguilar (2 February 1852 – 20 January 1913) was a Mexican political lithographer who used relief printing to produce popular illustrations. His work has influenced numerous Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and bones to convey political and cultural critiques. Among his most enduring works is La Calavera Catrina.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jos%C3%A9_Guadalupe_Posada
