Artist – Tony Galigo

`Because the Day of the Dead is really a celebration of life,” said Tony Galigo, “it’s natural that food is present.”

While researching for my dissertation I found this artist and couldn’t believe my idea of creating an installation room was similar in some ways to his piece ‘Let it go’ Mexican American Room installation 1995. His piece celebrates the ancient holiday of “Day of the Dead”, it is interesting to see how he has created a shrine to deceased family member using photographs, crosses, vibrant material, flowers and skulls. Very reflective of religion and Mexican spirit. 13446005_10153863117581026_1278817699_o
