The reason why I chose a skull more than anything else is because underneath all our skin is a skull.
It's the universal image to everybody.
My name is Butch Locsin, I am a contemporary performance artist here in Los Angeles.
I wear a skull mask and I play with smoke grenades.
My work is reflective of the Mexican culture and iconography and artwork.
Maria saw a lot of the photos that I was doing and she wanted to actually collaborate on a project.
And integrating her into what I do has been really fun and successful.
Maria, to me, has been such a blessing because now the character and the skeleton and colors actually marry to her.
And we've been creating love scenes and stories.
I really like the Day of the Dead holiday.
It's not about celebrating someone's death, it's more about celebrating someone's life.
My artwork and my performance is kind of little bit of a reflection of that,
but even though I kind of represent myself as like this Death character,
you know I'm very much alive.
What I love about performance art is honestly the rush that I get from working with so many people.
You know it makes me want to go out there and create some more and do something different.
