“They Divide We Multiply” In Collaboration With Ernesto Yerena, Available Thursday, June 6th @ 10 AM PT

June 04, 2024

This  “They Divide We Multiply” print is a collaboration with my friend, former co-worker, and activist Ernesto Yerena. Ernesto and I have been friends for almost 20 years, and when we sat in the same room working, we often talked about politics and social issues. Ernesto has become a very important creative voice, lending his talents to lots of important progressive causes. He and I have collaborated on cause-related art, and both of us work with many of the same grassroots organizations, which bring many creatives from a range of backgrounds together for the common cause of pushing for justice.  While others attempt to divide people, we focus on bringing multitudes together. This grid-like Icon Face variation was originally created for a show I did in 2000 called “Repetition Works,” and Ernesto and I decided it would be nice to do a medium format fine art print update incorporating new colors and Ernesto’s rose icon emanating rays which symbolize dignity. This print basically represents collaboration, activism, and solidarity, which also is the embodiment of how Ernesto and I have worked together and with bigger coalitions. Edition of 100. Half will be sold on obeygiant.com and half on hechoconganas.com.
