Lucha Libre

When I saw this postcard of lucha libre mexican wrestlers it reminded me of Peter Blake's work. So I bought it and sent it to him. Hope he liked it! He seems to have a bit of a thing about wrestlers and the comic-book, super-hero-ish aesthetic was something I thought he would appreciate. I've liked Peter Blake's work for a long time and for several reasons.Not least because he's one of the few artists who has managed to cross the illustration/fine art divide successfully . He definitely has a foot in both camps. While I was at it I also got this wooden toy which is really a piece of folk art,in my opinion, but have kept that for myself.
