lucha candles

I found some vintage wrestling photographs during my last visit to Mexico City’s Lagunilla Street Market. What struck me the most about the photographs was their amateur look, most of them looked like they could have been taken at people’s homes. I bought the photographs and decided to create some art with them. I decorated these candles using photocopies of those images. Each candle is unique, only a few of each image will be made. All my work is manual - I only used a photocopier, scissors and glue for this project.
