Front Cover and Back Cover Images - Juan Obando Tropical Nazi, 2009 Screen print on French paper.

Tropical Nazi is a piece consisting of two parts: A series of phantasmagoric prints appearing in the streets of Bogotá, Colombia, and an action performed in Grand Central Station, NYC (U.S.A.) during a Colombian country branding event. The resulting images are graphic mutations combining the tropical iconography used by the Colombian country brand "Colombia Is Passion" and Nazi symbols like the Parteiadler and the Totenkopf.
