Publisher's Description

“I was born in 1986, in Michoacán, Mexico and came to Los Angeles at the age of seven. I have lived in Los Angeles since then, and — to say the least — I have seen a lot. My life, society, and culture have given me much to think about, but I am able to express only a small amount of it with words. I prefer to express myself through my artwork.” – Javier Carrillo

For such a small book, Las Trocas Angelinas, con sus Mercancía (The Angelinos' Trucks with their Merchandise) speaks volumes. Javier Carrillo created a suite of 6 “suicide prints” — a type of linoleum print considered to be the single most difficult form of multicolor printing — each featuring what is a common sight across this country and many others: a small, well-worn pickup truck filled to the breaking point with tools or merchandise. In Carrillo’s prints, the pickup trucks with their humble yet priceless cargo — used wooden pallets, freshly-picked oranges, lawn mowing equipment — become almost heroic in their stoicism, and one can’t help but draw a comparison between them and the burros that they have replaced. The original, signed photograph included with each copy of the book is one of the snapshots Carrillo made as a “sketch” for his finished studio prints.

SIGNED with a Print. Edition size: 500.
