"I believe Black Lives Matter movement impacted every aspect of civilization in this modern connected world. During the past couple of months we all had to take a look at our own lives and understand that not saying anything was actually contributing to the problem. Understanding that Black Lives Matter is not just about people of one color but about all colors and specifically about "racism". It is time to take action and actually do something about our immediate context and 2020 has been the year to do so." —J Manuel Carmona
ABOUT THE ARTIST
"Having been born in Texas along the Mexican border, raised in Mexico, and then spending the majority of my adult life in the USA, my work is greatly informed by my binational Mexican/American heritage, my queer identity, and the intersection of the LGBTQI and Latino communities of San Francisco. I have explored these communities and concepts through varied and diverse artistic approaches, creating murals, posters, sculptures, and art installations that in some way satisfy my own personal curiosity, respond to the immediate context, honor the message, and impact the spectator. As I continue to explore the power of public art, I hope to use my work to inspire individuals with the pride and love that I feel for my two countries of heritage, my LGBTQI community, and to bring focus to the duality of millions of Mexican-Americans living and traveling between both sides of this border." —J Manuel Carmona
