I just learned of an excellent Mexican sculptor last week named Alejandro Santiago. Sadly I learned of him and his work because he died of a heart attack at age 49. He is most famous for the clay sculptures he created to represent all of the migrants who left his town in Mexico for a better life in the US. Here are a couple photos of his figures:
The project was called 2501 Migrants and you can find much more of Alejandro’s terrific work by clicking on the link.
