Collection: Peter Lloyd   1968 - present 

Lloyd travelled to Mexico to study their ‘Day of the Dead’. However, this event reminded him more of Halloween and was not the festival he was hoping for.

While in Mexico, however, Lloyd discovered the ‘Lucha Libra’ wrestling culture. The wrestlers expressed traditional values, folkloric traditions, mass entertainment and political activism, which Lloyd felt was missing from the festival he had originally been to see. This led to him to make this series of screenprints which incorporate Mexican culture and fine art.

Lloyd’s work is featured in some of the biggest pop icon’s collections, including David Bowie, Missy Elliot, Vic Reeves and Holly Johnson. He is now Director of the School of Art, Design and Fashion at Southampton Solent University.
