Palehorse Lucha 2: Exhibit & Recap Video

Recap Video produced by: Daniel Reyes
For my 10 year anniversary exhibit this year, 
I pulled out all the stops and joined forces with a team of professional luchadores, photographers, mask makers, costume creators, videographers, a writer, a sculpture artist, a DJ/Producer, a clothing company, a projection mapper, a toy maker, a web designer, a wrestling school and a sound/lighting/staging company to tranform a historic theatre in downtown Tampa into an immersive, underground Palehorse universe, filled with original luchadores, new artwork, psychedelic visuals, Mexican food, cocktails and over-the-top performances.   

This show was the realization of a grand, creative vision that began in 2015 and it has been a lot of hard work, as well as an honor to collaborate with such a talented group of creatives to pull this off. I have always seen lucha libre as a fertile medium for artistic expression and watching these characters go from concept sketches to real-life, high-flying luchadores in the ring was a dream come true. Thanks to everyone who dedicated their time and skills to this project to make it a reality!

Words by: M0nster
Beware of the The Hidden Hand of Darkness. Serpentico has infiltrated the government, the news media outlets, schools and entertainment companies to spread his lies and distort our perceptions of reality. His aim is to keep us crippled with fear and under his fog of control. In this digital age, things are not always as they seem, but the true heroes are emerging to spread truth and awareness, so that humanity can join together and collectively awaken from his sinister trance. Remember, Serpentico and his minions are only a few. There are so many more of us and his power is only an illusion.
