Support our November 2019 Changarrito Artist, The Dead Bros as part of Big Medium East Austin Studio Tour at Canopy. Changarrito pop-up mobile art gallery will be traveling to the Canopy where The Dead Bros Gang will be exhibiting their artwork! In the spirit of Changarrito, the pop-up mobile art gallery where artists can sell their work to the public, Changarrito with The Dead Bros allows the artist to bring their work to you. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates on original work available for purchase as well as behind the scenes of the artist’s work, space, and creative process.


About the Artist: 

The Dead Bros Gang is an artist collective consisting of three brothers, Omar @deadlyskull89, Alonso @thedeathhead, and Gustavo Estrada @theghost11. While the brothers do work independently as artists and murals, they also work together on projects. All three artists are self-taught and employ elements of street culture into their work. Much of their imagery incorporates the concept of death and the influence of Day of the Dead in their art. For more about their work, see their Instagram: @thedeadbrosgang

About Changarrito Project:

Changarrito is an art vending cart, conceptualized by artist Maximo Gonzalez as an alternative to the official gallery selection presented by the Mexican cultural authorities. Faithful to their original, informal spirit, Changarritos exist throughout the world, evolving as forums for the sale of original artwork to the general public, presentation of public programs, special curatorial projects, individual and collective exhibitions. True to the Mexic-Arte Museum’s mission, the Changarrito is dedicated to the presentation and promotion of contemporary Latinx and Latin American art. 

Changarrito vending cart:

True to the Mexic-Arte Museum’s mission, the Changarrito is dedicated to the presentation and promotion of contemporary Latina/o and Latin American art. Artists will have the opportunity to sell their art on the Changarrito cart in front of the Museum (or an offsite location, as a representative for the Museum during various Austin art festivals) while keeping 100% of sales. For each Changarrito artist, the Museum purchases a work of art to acquire for its permanent collection. The time commitment is four days over two weekends, Saturday and Sunday 12 – 3 pm.

Presenting Changarrito’s virtual component:

As of Spring 2020, the Mexic-Arte Museum has added a virtual component to the Changarrito Artist Residency, allowing Changarrito artists to not only showcase their artwork on the Changarrito vending cart, but also to the museum’s Facebook and Instagram audience for the month the Changarrito Artist Residency takes place. Artists are allowed to showcase themselves or artwork through ten to twelve Facebook and Instagram posts for the entire month and get the chance to be interviewed via an Instagram Live interview byMexic-Arte Museum’s Curator Of Exhibitions and Director Of Programs, Isabel Servantez during the last Tuesday or Thursday of the month. The Instagram Live interview is optional. 

Chosen artists will be able to display their artwork, create video and picture posts, sell their artwork, and walk us through their artistic process throughout the month. Rules on posting: 3 posts per week for a total of 10 – 12 posts for the whole month, via Mexic-Arte Museum’s Instagram account (@mexic_arte) and Facebook account (@mexicarte).
