> DESCRIPTION

Santitos illustrates contemporary beliefs in protective saints and deities. The prints depict official and folk saints in the Latin American Catholic and Russian Orthodox churches as well as deities from Japanese Shintoism, Irish Celtic mythology, and Haitian Santaria. Thirty-four artists are represented, forming an international roster of printmakers from Guatemala, Japan, Mexico, Russia, and the United States, many of whom have Chicago connections as alumni or faculty of such institutions as the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago. The prints are executed in a variety of print techniques, including woodcuts, wood engravings, etchings, and linocuts.

The prints are available as a portfolio from Chicago’s Arceo Press.
