Details

Getting a whiff of tequila, a cat sits too mischievously close to an open bottle, in card number 10 of Marina Pallares' exclusive interpretation of Mexico's lotería. It is a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional images. The loteria made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. "I grew up in Jalisco, known for the production of tequila from agave plants, and as a child I used to play lotería all the time. These two facts inspired me to create the 'Tequila Lotto' series," confides Pallares, who credits the influence of Leopoldo Méndez and José Guadalupe Posada in her work. She masters aquafortis and aquatint etching techniques to create this eloquent composition.

"Beautiful"

I loved this the second I saw it, and had just gotten a new job and apartment, so I splurged. The quality is fantastic, and seeing it on my wall makes me smile every day. Ive since also purchased the Jaguar print from Ms. Pallares, and hope to add another print in the future -- shes just an overall wonderful artist.

"Wonderful print!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love the look of wood-block prints, and I love cats, so I zeroed in on this the minute I spotted it. It didn't disappoint. It''s a stylish and imaginative image that I continue to enjoy looking at, even after owning it for a couple of years. In fact, I donated a copy to a fundraiser I was chairing for a cat rescue, and it was an extremely popular silent auction item. You can't go wrong with Maria Pallares's art. (I recently bought another print and love it too.)

"“The Cat, Tequila Lotto”"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I recently received Marina Pallares “The Cat, Tequila Lotto” and couldn t be happier! Marina is a wonderfully clever artist whose works are thoughtful and in many ways unexpected. I have purchased several of her pieces, both for myself and as gifts, and will continue to do so.

This is one of three pieces that I have bought of Marina Pallares work. I pretty much love all of her prints! This little octopus is super charming and makes me smile every time I look at it.
