“Alfonso Morales, farmer, poet, elementary school teacher, and artist of paper (cartonero), has participated in the monumental alebrijes parade in Mexico.” -Héctor Martínez.
“My name is Tania Morales, fourteen years ago I started to work cartonería, helping my dad with his monumental alebijes. After some years I also started to do my own alebrijes. Then, I started teaching in some workshops in some rural communities and schools. Since 2017 I am a full-time artist of cartoneria, I mainly design dolls, catrinas, and some jewelry. It has been a difficult way because sometimes I don’t sell my pieces, but one year ago I decided to open my Instagram account and I have met more people interested in my work.”
