As a Latinx artist in America today, I feel that I can no longer create art that is not an act of resistance. I must ask myself: what does it mean to create art right now in 2019? How does the work I create inspire the conversations necessary to our growth as a society? How can I use my voice as an artist to amplify the voiceless? These questions all have led me to solidify my artistic mission to a few core principals:
