Chinga La Migra: Folsom Edition
In late September of 2019 I had my very first booth, it was at Folsom Street Fair and I released 2 new woodblock Prints.
As I was carving this piece of a person with a gag ball in their mouth that says 'Chinga la Migra' I began to realize that I felt like that. That immigrants are always told to shut up and stay in the background, scared to speak up because of what might happen.
Politicians continuing to hold our lives in their hands, meanwhile children are in cages and kids are left walking around parking lots looking for their rdeported parents.
The gag ball represented more and more the more I thought about it.
