When I was a student, all that was told to me was how much my cultura didn’t matter. How important European art and standards are, and how totally dominant their aesthetic should be. All I wanted to do was tell my story. And I looked nothing like what is considered relevant or beautiful or important by society’s ideals. But I JUST.KEPT.GOING. Here are some of my pieces. I’m here to uplift and change who is in the spotlight. Powerful womyn of color. My indigenous sisters.
I am the boyfriend of the divine woman who created these paintings! Over 800 notes in two days? You guys have no idea how proud I am of her!
Future generations will be studying Crystal Galindo’s work like we study Frida and Diego’s work now. Mark my words.
