This year to celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), tequila maker el Jimador is partnering with notable printmaker Chris Bourke for the 50 Skulls Project: fifty distinct works of art that access the vibrant spirit of Día de los Muertos.
The pieces feature Bourke’s variations on the traditional skull theme, combining the Day of the Dead’s storied symbolism with the artist’s defined personal style. He uses a variety of color combinations and patterns that accentuate and add nuance to the imagery. Taken as a whole, Bourke’s work reflect the diversity and liveliness of yearly Day of the Dead festivals hosted throughout the world.
To go along with the commission, el Jimador is organizing various contests to win a set of Bourke’s prints, plus the chance to win a VIP table at Callooh Callay’s Day of the Dead party in Shoreditch, and of course a bottle of el Jimador. Please drink responsibly.
