Ernesto Yerena has really been cranking out the goods lately. This new one, “Con O Sin Dinero”, is an 18″ x 24″ screenprint, has an edition of 25, and is $60 shipped.
Here is what Ernesto had to say about the print:
“My new print is titled “CON O SIN” which translates to “WITH OR WITHOUT” because of the quote in the print by legendary Mariachi Singer/Writer/Composer Jose Alfredo Jimenez which goes “Con dinero o sin dinero hago siempre lo que quiero” which then translates to “With money or without money I always do what I please” which has been a very influential quote for me. I first heard that lyric as a kid and have since lived by that qoute because no matter how broke I am I always feel “rich” with GANAS (motivation) which then allows me to figure out how to do what i want to do. You will be seeing the word GANAS “alot” within my work because thats the reason im doing my work in the first place. The illustration of the “Norteño” Musician was based from a photo that I shot in november of 2007 while working on my series of norteño musicians in Mexicali B.C., MX. The photo worked perfect with the quote because the man looked really happy and gave off a vibe that he does do what he pleases regardless of his funds.”
