Art Description

Drawing: Pencil on Paper.

I created this portrait of Emiliano Zapata in 1994 soon after the modern Zapatista rebel uprising in Mexico's state of Chiapas. My artwork was eventually published as a book cover for author Tom Barry's Zapata's Revenge [South End Press 1995].

The question of revolution in Mexico had come full circle for me in a very personal way. My uncle had fought as a young boy in the Mexican revolution under Zapata. Now, many decades later - other people of corn have stepped forward to fulfill Zapata's bold vision.
