Art’s Street Gazette

San Francisco artist Art Hazelwood uses graphic elements of Mexican Artist Jose Guadalupe Posada’s original Gaceta Callejera (Street Gazette) (1852-1913) to frame the trenchant and topical images he hands out freely on the street at Bay Area civic events and protests.  

Though buried in a paupers grave, Posada has  inspired several generations of artists with his darkly whimsical use of Dia de los Muertos motifs.

With street distribution made difficult due to the pandemic, Hazelwood now offers us his digital version of the latest Gaceta Callejera entitlled Black Lives Matter.
