Black Velvet El Santo


Size: 22" x 28" (including frame)


To say that "El Santo" is a lucha legend, is a huge understatement. He was more than a luchador with a parallel acting career. Santo is a cultural icon and a social phenomenon whose impact in the Mexican society is enormous in many different ways. As a kid, I remember seeing Santo everywhere...TV, Movies, little Spanish comic books on the comic stand at my neighborhood bakery Porras Prontito. Even though I didn't speak Spanish or know who he was at the time, his look intrigued me to learn as much as I could about him. For me, he didn't just transcend Lucha, he transcended language barriers.  - J. Salazar
