Black History

Month

2021

This series began in February 2021 and was inspired by the Black Lives Matter Movement which exploded with the George Floyd protests in 2020, in the midst of the pandemic;

 

It is on-going;

 

My intention is to educate myself

and others on the role played by African Americans in the history of the 'United Snakes of America'-

 

This history- our history- has been swept under the continental American rug for far too long;

Connecting the threads of past struggles to our struggles today, so that we may learn from the lessons of the past and take our destinies into our own hands!

A sleepy giant slowly awakens...

Let us rise, united!

Valentina is my given name

 

I am a revolutionary with a cause

 

Born in Colombia, I've lived in Panama, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, and currently find myself in Montréal

My work concerns both inner and outer world revolutions. I explore these themes through different means;

Portraits, in particular, allow me to explore more deeply the interconnection between the individual and the collective

MAKE ART, NOT WAR!

BUT IF THERE MUST BE WAR,

LET IT BE CLASS WAR!

WORKERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!
