The images included in this gallery are a selection of independent political works, spanning the last 20 years. Although this website was first created with “Political,” “Spiritual” and “Cultural” galleries, all of my works evolved into expressions of the human quest for liberation on multiple levels, political liberation being just one of them. In 2005, I started working on more specific series, featured in separate galleries on this website.

These works are inspired by various liberation struggles, but in particular that of my own nation, Puerto Rico. Revealing elements of hidden histories, the works are a journey through my process of self-education that began with my father speaking to me about colonialism in Puerto Rico, back when I was in high school. As a portraitist mainly, the paintings usually tell stories of freedom fighters, some of them having sacrificed their own freedom as political prisoners.
