“Escape From Fantasylandia: An Illegal Alien’s Survival Guide”


In Escape from Fantasylandia: An Illegal Alien’s Survival Guide, Chagoya continues his examination of cultural realities with satire and humor. Using an historical lexicon of Mexican images, beliefs, and myths about death, Chagoya lightens his message with a beautiful Quetzalcoatl, or plumed serpent, traversing the top of the codex, weaving in birds, dolphins and butterflies.

Escape from Fantasylandia: An Illegal Alien’s Survival Guide has been printed in ten colors with gold metallic powder from nine aluminum plates on 9½ x 80 inch handmade Amate paper, in an edition of 30, plus proofs.
