A crocodile in black and white turning back on a gray background.
From his beginning in the artistic scene of mid 20th century in Mexico, Arévalo was in favor of a separation between arts and politics. He always considered himself an artist from Jalisco, althought he lived for many years in Mexico City and other parts of the country. Arévola's work was always between being an artist and a teacher. He concentrated himself on large and small format painting also on graphic work. His work have presence in and out Mexico.
The draw in the crocodile is the base of the print, Its lines highlighting its scales.
