Gig-poster sale – donations for Mexico

Update: September 19

Mexico was hit again, now by a 7.1 earthquake in the city center, hours after the safety drills (The deadliest earthquake was this same date in 1985). More than 40 buildings collapsed. Deathtoll raises to 200 and right now (Wed 20, 10am, Melbourne time) people are still trapped and without electricity.

 

Last week Mexico was hit by an 8.2 magnitude earthquake —the strongest since 1932. Towns and communities in poor regions of Oaxaca, Tabasco and Chiapas were severely damaged and the death toll has raised to over 90 in the past days.  There is a lot of re-building needed.

The amazing Colectivo Mercadorama has donated silkscreen gig-posters by some of Mexico´s finest artists: Kraken, Smithe and Mike Sandoval. I am joining efforts with a few of my prints to be sold in Australia.

The money from the sales will be donated  to relief affected communities from the “Istmo” region  trough Francisco Toledo (legendary print-maker from Oaxaca, known for his constant work in community, environmental and political issues. Update: beside Oaxaca donations will be directed to other support channels, like Dona Kichink and communities in Jojutla trough friends and family.

If you want to purchase any of these prints, please contact me at 0412-794649 or contact@gustavomorainslie.com; shipping available within Australia (not included)

If you don´t want prints you can also help with a direct donation, what buys here a coffee and lunch makes a huge difference in those communities where the minimum wage per day is less than $6 aud… So, you get the idea.

Thanks to all friends and family that have joined so far, We have reached $820aud

Bank details: Gustavo Morales, Account: 440224358, 193-879

All posters are hand-printed silkscreens from limited editions. 200g couche matte paper. Last but not least thanks to Ahmed Bautista for making this possible.

Además del top 10 quisiera incluir en lo mejor del año 2 retratos de bandas que tuve la suerte de conocer en persona: El primero muestra la simpatía y sencillez de una gran banda con la que fue un placer trabajar  (Cuarteto de Nos) y la segunda (serie) que muestra el lado más humano y expresivo de los hombres detrás de las máscaras de Slipknot.


 

Besides the top 10 I would like to include in the best of the year portraits of 2 bands I was lucky to meet in person. The first one shows the sympathy and simplicity of a great band which was a pleasure to work with (Cuarteto de Nos – Uruguay), the second (series) shows the human and more expressive side of the men behind the Slipknot masks.
