This is a look at the passion and dedication of a young socially conscience artist. His name is Ramiro Gomez Jr., and because his parents are Mexican immigrants that work in the janitorial and truck driving fields, he has become very aware of the invisibility of the blue collar worker. His art is built around placing paintings of domestic laborers in L.A.’s luxury districts to shine a light on these workers, and their importance in our society.
His work is currently being represented by the Charlie James Gallery. I expect this young man has a great future ahead. This film is part of The Atlantic’s American Dreams series.
