Carnavalera (Carnival Dancer)

Carnavalera (Carnival Dancer) by Lesley Mitchell

Drawing on marbled paper, 10 x 8 inches, 2009.

Part of the MURGA series of drawings, paintings, prints, all inspired by photos I took of a murga in Buenos Aires in 2008. Murga is a carnaval tradition in Argentina and Uruguay that includes singing, dancing, parades, and political satire.
