Dr. Lakra, cover of our August 2010 issue, was just invited by and completed a site-specific mural at the Museum of Contemporary Art Oaxaca, Mexico. Our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America tell us that the piece tells the story of a shooting and residual effects that the shooting has on the characters in the mural.

Jeronimo Lopez Ramirez, better known as Dr. Lakra (cover artist in August 2010), is a tattoo artist and illustrator who lives in the city of Oaxaca, Mexico, and occasionally can be found tattooing in different studios in Mexico City. Last week our colleagues at Juxtapoz Latin America had the opportunity to see the process when tattooing a piece of a gypsy with lyrics that read "SinYolanda." We love it.

Our good friends in Mexico City made it out to the 2012 Mexico Contemporary Art Fair (MACO) last week, and from the looks of it, there was a ton of good booths and artists on display in Mexico City, including Takashi Murakami, Dr Lakra, George Condo, Pedro Friedeberg, Maya Hayuk, Clayton Brothers, and other heavyweights of the contemporary art world. A few notes and lots of photos after the jump . . .

Today we show you the completed collaborative mural that Herbert Baglione and Dr. Lakra worked on in Oaxaca, Mexico last week in conjunction with the Day of the Dead festivities. As you can see in the final mural, the artist took the Day of the Dead celebration and its themes of celebrating those passed away and applied to each of their styles.

Juxtapoz // Sunday, January 09, 2011
We are familiar with artists that use tattoo art and apply it on found images, or in this case, fashion spreads. Dr Lakra uses a similar philosophy. But we were intrigued this morning by the art of Belgian artist Jean-Luc Moerman, who takes the idea of body marking and body art and applies it to contemporary female, and male, icons.
