This painting depicts the Legend of Popocatepetl & Iztaccíhuatl, A Love Story & visual that inspired a part of my project “Proxima Vida” As an indigenous Latina I do not see my indigenous Latinos represented in the media in a beautiful, thoughtful way. So I decided to create it myself.
I am sick of the amount of negativity Trump has encouraged targeting Latinos & specifically Mexican people.
Beyond entertainment I wanted to make a statement about representing my people in a positive light. I love the fact that I am depicting a warrior & princess. I can’t think of a better person to celebrate & pay homage to my indigenous roots than an indigenous Latina artist herself producing it allll by myself honey Sweat blood & tears🙏🏽😅💰”Proxima Vida” drops this Friday🔥I can’t wait to share it with you all💓swipe left to read the story of the full legend. #ProximaVida #artist #latina #indigenlatina #iamlatina #latinaartist #artistalatina #aztec #aztecwarrior #indigenous #sangreindigena #inca #maya #indigenouslatinos #indigenousprincess - 24 minutes ago
