    About

    Ivester Contemporary is excited to present a solo exhibition of multi-color linocuts by San Antonio based artist Juan de Dios Mora titled "The Tremendos." This is the artist’s second solo exhibition with Ivester Contemporary.

    In "The Tremendos," Juan de Dios Mora explores the symbolism of Mexican luchadores and guardians. As Mora explains, “In some regions in Mexico, it is believed that everyone has a guardian angel. Such beings advise people to do good deeds, while protecting them from dangers and evil. As people grow older, their perspective changes from guardian angels to physical heroes. Luchadores is a representation of physical heroes, because of their immense strength and agility to overcome adversity. People can also identify with luchadores, due to their mannerism and emotions that they express through stardom inside the ring."
