Dr Lakra


Dr Lakra

Dr Lakra (Jeronimo Lopez Ramirez, born 1972, Mexico) is an artist and tattooist based in Oaxaca, Mexico. Apart from tattooing, his art involves embellishing images and other found objects - for instance, dolls, old medical illustrations, and pictures in 1950s Mexican magazines - with macabre or tattoo-style designs.[1]

He has shown work internationally in many exhibitions including Stolen Bike at the Andrew Kreps Gallery in New York, Los Dos Amigos at MACO in Mexico, Pin Up at Tate Modern and Pierced Hearts and True Love at The Drawing Center in New York.

He is the son of the graphic artist Francisco Toledo,[2] and Elisa Ramirez Castañeda, a well known Mexican anthropologist and poet. He is also the brother of Natalia Toledo (poet) and Laureana Toledo (artist).[3]

In 2007, he co-produced the book 'Los Dos Amigos' with artist Abraham Cruzvillegas. In 2008 he participated in the "Goth: Reality of the Departed World" exhibition at the Yokohama Museum of Art, curated by Eriko Kimura.

His works are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art,[4] the Hammer Museum[5] and the Walker Art Center.[6]

Dr Lakra is represented by kurimanzutto, Mexico City and Kate MacGarry, London.
