Juan Sanchez

Brooklyn-born artist Juan Sanchez’s art draws attention to issues of culture and social justice, including Puerto Rican identity, American colonialism, and intersectionality as a whole. His work — amalgamations of the different cultural influences shaping Puerto Rico — represents a complex sense of belonging. Sanchez is considered one of the most significant Nuyorican artists of his time.
