Juventino Aranda: Flag

"Esperé Mucho Tiempo Pa Ver"

Juventino Aranda’s work expresses a search for identity at the intersection of Mexico and America. As the artist has stated, “I am Mexican and second generation ‘American.’ I am not Hispanic, Latino, and definitely not Spanish — even though I live everyday with the consequences of their conquest.” Aranda’s sharp-witted art navigates this cultural borderland, drawing from pre-Columbian sources as well as current affairs related to the social, political and economic struggles of late capitalism and notions of the American dream. At the heart of his enterprise lie poignant reflections of personal vulnerability veiled in a tenderness and humor meant to disarm.
