Border Bang by Jorge Gutiérrez


Jorge Gutiérrez, the acclaimed director of The Book of Life, returns with Border Bang, an original art book celebrating the mix between American pop culture + Mexican folklore. This bilingual book is a loving reflection of the re-appropriated pop culture references he would see as a child on his daily walks across the Mexico–U.S. border. Gutiérrez created more than 100 paintings in his unique style, each proposing a bootleg version of popular characters, artists, + musicians. From Spiderman + the Powerpuff Girls to David Bowie + Tupac Shakur, he also pays homage to Mexican icons, including Frida Kahlo, Pancho Villa, Lucha Libre + the 1986 Mexican World Cup mascot. Border Bang is a love letter to diversity + cross-cultural dialogue that will appeal to fans of both American pop culture + traditional Mexican folklore. Hardcover. 192 pages.
