a Camovement by Cam Be
I sat down with Viajero at his studio in Brooklyn, NY. We spoke on culture, art, and legacy.
A word from Viajero
"I want to add this statement ... there are MANY amazing Puerto Rican artists TODAY (Miguel Luciano, Antonio Martorell, Sofia Maldonado, Celso Gonzalez, Ricardo Cabret, Roberto Biaggi, Gabriela Vazquez Martinez, Osvaldo Martinez, ..... and SO MANY MORE today that represent our culture, our stories, our history, with respect, honor, pride, and passion. These are artists that take the images and ideas of what the average person (Puerto Rican or not) understands or associates with being Puerto Rican, and turns them into beautifully orchestrated narratives about our people and culture. I respect all these artists and address them with high regard, from previous generations to current generations of artists that fight to take the image of our culture to a higher level ... the level it deserves to be represented. IT'S OUR TIME BROWN PEOPLE!"
