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 no 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."
