2019 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of 200 Size 18x24
"Sky High" is a vibrant and compelling limited edition silkscreen print by Ernesto Yerena Montejano, an artist whose work sits at the intersection of Mexican-American identity and pop art. Yerena, under his studio name Hecho Con Ganas, produced this print in 2019, showcasing his distinctive style that marries the bold aesthetics of street art with the nuanced commentary of fine art. Limited to a run of just 200 signed and numbered pieces, each print measures 18x24 inches, a size that allows viewers to engage intimately with the work while still appreciating its bold graphic qualities. Ernesto Yerena Montejano has established himself as a prominent figure in pop and street art, bringing forth a unique perspective that reflects his bicultural experience. His artworks often feature strong cultural symbols juxtaposed with bright, contrasting colors, a hallmark of classic pop art. "Sky High" features an array of eagles soaring in formation, creating a symmetrical pattern around a central rose. This symbol could be interpreted as a nod to beauty and resilience. The background's concentric circles in bold hues enhance the sense of motion and energy emanating from the composition. Silkscreen printing aligns Yerena with techniques popularized by pop art icons such as Andy Warhol, yet his subject matter is decidedly rooted in his cultural heritage and contemporary social issues. The choice of fine art paper as a medium for "Sky High" further blurs the lines between street art's transient nature and the permanence sought in fine art collections. This piece captures the dynamic essence of street art while being crafted with the precision and durability of fine art practices. Collectors and admirers of "Sky High" are drawn to its powerful visual statement and the meticulous craftsmanship of the hand-pulled print. Yerena’s work is not merely a decorative piece but an emblem of cultural pride and political expression. These encapsulating themes resonate deeply within the Mexican-American community and among advocates of pop art's power to communicate beyond words. The limited availability of "Sky High" makes it not just a piece of art but a slice of cultural history, embodying the spirit of a community that continues to soar against challenges, much like the eagles depicted in its design.
