20 Woodcut prints By Guillermo Trejo




There is an old and a new consciousness of time. The old is connected with the individual. The new is connected with the universal. The struggle of the individual against the universal is revealing itself in the world war as well as in the art of the present day. 1918 De Stilj Manifesto



Manifiesto, are a series of woodcuts inspired originally by the shapes of plants blooming during spring, however this project rapidly evolved into an independent system of abstraction that is contained under a series of aesthetic rules and a limitation of shapes. This series was deeply influenced by the work of De Stijl and in particular from their manifesto, that calls for the creation of a universal art as a social and political way to change the world.
