Description: 
Linocut with acrylic on a booklet of wallpaper samples and other support offered by the passers-by. The time for the etching enables me to start my gab celebrating LO GRAN CALAMAR*
*When we compare the curve about the presence of tourists on the Riviera to that about the presence of the calamari, we can observe that they are completely opposite. Thus, the more calamari, the fewer tourists.

To implore the GRAN CALAMAR, in order to divert our city from its morbid Riviera destiny, from its confinement to postcard, transforming the locations into décor and any cultures into tacky folklore.
