Artist: Gilda Posada
Title: ¡ALTO A LAS DEPORTACIONES!
Description: I come from a land condemned to amnesia, poverty, war, suffering and death. But I believe in the possibility of a better world, not just for my brothers and sisters but for humanity as a whole. In order for that world to happen there are certain things that have to occur: truth must be told, lies must be exposed and people must know of the possibility of a better world. The work I do is inspired by those who fight for the possibility of a better world and by those who have fallen as victims to an oppressive and destructive system because they knew of no other alternative. The topics of my work range from the political to spiritual but it always has one purpose- to bring truth to light. Only with truth will we be able to move forward and change the human condition.
