Artist’s Statement:
My piece represents unity between Black and Brown people. We have both been through a lot, and it is important to be together, fight together, especially in these times. The reason I included a jaguar is that a lot of the Brown community in Latino America feel represented by the jaguar. I used the black panther to represent the Black community.
