Here's what the artist said about his print:

"For generations Mexican folk dance has been performed throughout the Southwestern United States by those of Mexican ancestry. My simple portrait of a Mexican folk dancer, or folklorista, was meant to honor those who've dedicated their talents to preserving and expanding this unique art form."

Vallen's print is a faithful reproduction of his Folklorista oil painting, originally painted on canvas in 2004. A complete monocromatic painting was first made in browns before introducing color. Vallen stuck to a limited palate, using only a few browns, reds, and yellows to complete the work.

A large version of the Folklorista painting is available for viewing on Saatchi Art.
