"El Chivo"

This was a 24 x 24 acrylic on canvas painting I just completed for a really cool art show on January 31st in Tijuana, Mexico called BANG! Mitos de Creacion (Creation Myths).

I chose to do a Mexican myth I heard in a Mexico City market from a hobo about how the devil was intimate with God's wife, she became pregnant and then God raised all Mexicans as his own. And that is why Mexicans all have the devil in them. Yeah, I think it's pretty scientific too.

Here it is in Spanish:

Mito Originario Satanico. Mexico DF.

Contado por un borrachito en el Mercado de Sonora.

“Una noche, Tata Dios y el mismisimo Diablo (con cabeza de chivo), estavan jugando domino y enborachandose. A todo dar! La esposa de Tata Dios estaba dormida en su recamara. Se les termino el pulque y Tata Dios, de Buena gente, se va a la tiendita a comprar mas. El canijo Diablo se aprovecha y viola al la esposa de Tata Dios! Cuando el regresa nadie dice nada. Al dia siguiente la mujer de Tata Dios esta embarazada. Tata Dios nos crio a todos como sus hijos aunque nuestro verdadero padre es jijo del Diablo. Como la ve joven? No me da para una torta?”


The show will feature paintings and art from various artist including Robot Soda, Mr. Kone, Zoveck, Lerms and many more.
