Video – Converse Presents Dr. Lakra

Dr. Lakra is a great Mexican artist we covered a few years back. In the above video, Converse profiles his creative process and inspiration. In tandem with the release of Dr. Lakra’s film, Converse is also supporting, as presenting sponsor, his first major US exhibition at the ICA in Boston.

“Oaxaca, Mexico-based artist Dr. Lakra transforms found printed materials and objects with mischievous, tattoo-inspired drawings. Referencing a range of imagery from traditional Maori tattoos, Mexican Day of the Dead icons to R. Crumb comics, Dr. Lakra’s work blurs cultural identities as it explores tensions between the group and the individual, the sacred and the profane. The artist’s first solo museum exhibition presents work in a variety of media and a newly-commissioned mural.”
