This chromoxylography print by Adrián Arguedas, captures the essence of masked figure. Conjuring “The Spirit of Masquerade,” this print explores masked identity, inviting viewers to contemplate the complexities of human expression and concealment.

Through intricate linework and subtle coloration, Arguedas deftly portrays the enigmatic nature of masquerade, drawing viewers into a realm where identities blur and mysteries unfold. The composition, rendered with meticulous precision, evokes a sense of intrigue and fascination, prompting reflection on themes of anonymity, transformation, and the hidden self.

Arguedas’ concern for the spirit of masquerade derived from his hometown of Barva de Heredia, near San José, a place known for its mask parades. Through the theme of masks and identity, Arguedas plays with the balance of contrasts, referencing dichotomies such as life vs death, tall vs small, and beauty vs ugliness. In addition, the juxtaposition between the playful and the violent is a central theme, driven by an undercurrent of parody that imparts a critical dimension to his canvases, and reveals a marked European influence from artists such as Pieter Brueghel, Hieronymus Bosch and Edward Hopper.
