artwork of television show la comay by Omar Velazquez.
Omar Velázquez - La Reina Del Miedo


Silkscreen produced by artist Omar Velázquez in collaboration with Trailer Park Projects.

The artwork was inspired in a TV gossip show run by "La Comay", a puppet owned by Kobbo Santarrosa. It was the #1 show in Puerto Rico for 14 years until a solid protest from a group of different sectors in Puerto Rico denounced homophobic and racist comments made by the puppet. The show was banned from TV in 2013 after all the years of glory.
