This chromoxylography print by Adrián Arguedas depicts a group of masked children. The scene presents a nuanced exploration of childhood innocence and societal dynamics, as some figures sit while others stand, each bearing a mask that obscures their individual identities. Arguedas’s deft use of chromoxylography lends a depth and richness to the composition, with subtle variations in colour and texture adding layers of meaning to the work.

This print invites viewers to contemplate themes of identity, belonging, and the masks we wear in our daily lives. Arguedas invites us into a world that is at once familiar and enigmatic, prompting reflection on the complexities of human interaction and the masks we present to the world.

Concerned with the balance of contrasts, Arguedas explores dichotomies such as life vs death, tall vs small, and beauty vs ugliness. Thee 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.
