Quiero Ser Artista 2010
This print is about a young boy who imagines his future as an artist. He is the son of farmworkers and sits at his desk making drawings in his sketchbook. Through the window, one can see the vast agricultural fields which are being sprayed with harmful chemicals. The boy is the son of immigrants and he knows there is a limited future for him working in the fields - instead he wishes to be an artist. The phrase "Quiero Ser Artista", in English means, "I want to be an artist."
This screenprint is hand printed on red French Paper by master printer, Jesus Barraza, and is embossed with a chop from the Taller Tupac Amaru.
