Ink, Watercolor, Graphite and Digital.


2666 is the last novel by Roberto Bolaño. It was released in 2004, a year after Bolaño’s death. Its themes are manifold, and it relates, among other things, the unsolved and ongoing female homicides of Ciudad Juárez (called Santa Teresa in the novel), the Eastern Front in World War II, and the breakdown of relationships and careers. The apocalyptic 2666 explores 20th-century degeneration through a wide array of characters, locations, time periods, and stories within stories.
