Dr. Lakra’s work explores the paradoxical way that tattoos identify one’s belonging to a group while expressing his or her individuality. The artist turns his skills as a draftsman to works on paper and found objects, transforming them with a galaxy of macabre and gothic imagery. In Sin título / Untitled (X8 Controla) Dr. Lakra presents a stoic, clean-shaven man surrounded by ominous images of mortality and script from notorious inner-city gangs.
