I am first generation Mexican American and my family celebrates El Dia De Los Muertos . For me and my family is a joyous and sacred time to welcome the souls of of the dead . In our case my grandfather and brother; In this particular day November the second my family celebrated with a delicious dinner where the living and the dead are joined if even for a short time . In essence we remember and talk about them ,specially since I did not have the opportunity to really get to know them. his way we celebrate their life and in a way is a triumph over dead . I believe in eternal life therefore; It becomes a celebration of life we make food, eat and celebrate this union only for a brief moment . In our family is tradition , but we believe he is in the spirit world and their soul is visiting since they get a pass just for the day. A family celebration for the spirits visinting from the spirit world which is just around the corner. I like to project my art in different ways this is me and my culture please enjoy.
