New Papel Picado design for Mexico's Independence Celebration

This Papel Picado piece is designed together with Didier Lebon.
It is specially made as a contemporary craft to be used during the 15 of September, the commemoration of the Mexican Independence from Spain. 
The motif represents a historical moment named "El Grito de Dolores" from Miguel Hidalgo, one of the country's heroes. "de Dolores" stands for the town where he initiated the battle. 

Didier Lebon and Gabriela Sanchez y Sanchez de la Barquera have redesigned this imagery and generated a word-game. Instead of "the shout at Dolores town" it is to be read "The shout of pain".

This piece is a metaphor about the constant violence occurring nowadays in Mexico and the emptiness while searching for a reason to celebrate.  

This is an on-going collection, for the complete selection click HERE 

Reforma newspaper speaks about our upcoming projects in Mexico.




Papel picado is an on-going  project made in collaboration with Didier Lebon and craftsmen in Mexico.  
Papel Picado (Chiseled Paper) is a handcraft in Mexico, commonly hanged during different celebrations. Motifs vary from national heroes, heart shapes, sculls, flowers, memorable phrases (Viva Mexico!), symbols of freedom and peace, among others. GSYSB together with producer Didier Lebon research contemporary Mexican imagery and facts, re-design motifs and produce hand-made Papel Picado in Mexico.
Examples of new themes are the definition of Modern Rites of Passage, new political portraits to admire, media heroes, recent deceased personalities to mourn for. The collection reflects new expressive needs from the citizens and updated values and feelings. It works for the people to enhance their national identity either with pride or as a protest object.
