Getting a whiff of tequila, a cat sits too mischievously close to an open bottle, in card number 10 of Marina Pallares' exclusive interpretation of Mexico's loteria. It is a unique version of the classic bingo game featuring traditional images. The loteria made its appearance in the second half of the 18th century, and it is still a favorite at schools, fairs, carnivals and festivals. Titled "El gato" in Spanish
About the Artist: Mexico's Marina Pallares believes painting has always been her destiny. 'Throughout my life, certain unexplainable things keep happening that lure me to the path of the fine arts. I adapt techniques according to the theme that I'm working on. Most of my themes revolve around people and ordinary activities such as drinking coffee, riding a bike or dancing. Although sometimes I can be more complicated and express my dreams, my feelings, and other personal issues.'
