I few years back, I found the most amazing painting of this Mexican comedy superhero character called Chapulin Colorado (red grasshopper) by Rhode Montijo. It led me to go through his work at the time and it was just as beautiful, with characters from a child’s nightmare and pretty colours everywhere, along with Mexican references to masked luchadores and mythological figures of the Aztecs.
