Mexican Artist Collaborates with Target for Día de Muertos Collection
Mexican graphic designer and illustrator Luis Pinto has partnered with Target to release a brand new Día de Muertos collection just in time for the two-day celebration.
Pinto’s collection includes 15 artistic pieces that would fit perfectly on any ofrenda. His decorative sculptures include El Charro, Señorita, El Mariachi, and a pair of stacked calaveras (skulls). Pinto also created picture frames, decorative trays, nesting bowls, candle holders, tablecloths, kitchen towels, vases, and more for the collaboration.
“Día de Muertos is a very special celebration in which we cherish the living and remember with love the ones who are not with us,” Pinto said in a statement. “I love how Target is helping Latino families celebrate Día De Muertos through products that can connect and relate to their traditions, helping them feel seen and represented in the process. I hope this collection brings life and celebration to the ofrendas that mean so much to so many Latino families.”
“Honoring the holiday’s rich artistic cultural influences, [Luis] complements his country’s most colorful celebration with a magical, modern energy,” Target said in a statement.
Customers can purchase one of Pinto’s 15 items in his collection for $5 to $20. They are available in Target stores and at Target.com.
Besides the collection by Luis Pinto, there are more Día De Muertos-themed items available at Target, from decorative pillows to children’s books and dolls. More information here.
