Carlos Cortez

A long time ago I posted about revolutionary Mexican prints after an exhibition I had seen at the British Museum. Another artist I came across recently whose work was in a similar vein is Carlos Cortez. An active member of the International Workers of the World throughout his life, he published many of his woodcuts and linocuts in the IWW newspaper until it switched away from a relief press in the 1960s. He continued producing prints until his death in 2005. Beautiful stuff.
