Latinx illustrators on Instagram

Awe-inspiring artists!

Latinx illustrators making your feed look like a virtual gallery

To keep celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month, we enlisted some illustrators that not only have in common their passion for art, but also have found recognition on one of the most used social media platforms

We can find art everywhere, and consciously or unconsciously, we benefit from it all the time. Whether is a painting beautifying your living room, or the abstract wallpaper on your electronic devices, all of it comes from someone who is either self-taught or spend a few years in college.

On Instagram, we can also find everything, from Latinx-owned small business to experts of digital art. This platform has helped millions of people to build their careers, share their talents plus inspire and educate others.

To keep celebrating Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month, we enlisted some illustrators that not only have in common their passion for art, but they also have found recognition on one of the most used social media platforms.

 Migrant womxn farmworkers are frontline responders right now, risking their health to take care of their families and support our communities in the most essential way, by feeding us According to the National Farm Worker Ministry, in the U.S. alone, womxn make up almost 30% of the agricultural workforce and are even more vulnerable than male farm workers. They face having to take the lowest paying jobs, machismo/toxic masculinity in the workplace, sexual harassment and pregnancy and gender discrimination. Womxn are exposed to toxic pesticides that leave reside on skin and clothing that directly affects their reproductive rights (infertility, miscarriages, birth defects in babies) and are statistically the primary caregivers of children. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As I’ve said before, food justice doesn’t begin and end in one place. Food justice & the rights our farm workers are deserving off is an immigration, bipartisan, environmental, labor, vegan & equity issue. Especially during the COVID-19 public health crisis, the food made accessible at your local Trader Joe’s to your local food bank, is made possible because of the labor of all farm workers. This Womxn’s History Month, it’s never been more important to honor and uplift the working womxn for making the world go round. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #WomensHistoryMonth #Coronavirus #COVID19 Art by me @smugmorenita // @gabrielaaleman.sf for @culturestrike

 ⁣ Day 5 of peaceful protests in Dominican Republic —⁣ 🇩🇴 This is for the international community; for the Dominican diaspora that wish to share information with their non-Spanish speaking friends & family; for mine, who’s asked what is it I’ve been sharing about DR in my stories these last few days. ⁣ This is an incredibly summarized and easily digestible recap of events. Trying to be as impartial as I can as there are still a lot of questions to be answered. However, I’ve excluded events that have exacerbated the situation because it’s still “alleged” (pero uno sabe klk), like the assault of a telecom technician under National Police custody for conversations he had about a possible election sabotage the day before, or the extended power outages being experienced after elections were suspended prompting some to assume it’s on purpose. Government says they had nothing to do with either, leading to more questions & confusion. ⁣ This is just to open curiosity/dialogue. Stay informed, read the news, and draw your own conclusions. ⁣ In the meantime, DR is still fighting the good fight.. on the right side of history. Huge shoutout to the youth for leading a whole movement. 🇩🇴⁣ ⁣ ——⁣ Está en inglés porque hay demasiado información siendo compartida por personas que están viviéndolo en vivo, y prefiero dirigirlos a ellos, amplificar su voz; como @josemariacabral @carosantanas @altagraciasa @somospueblord y muchos más. Esto es para visibilidad extranjera, que también viene bien.⁣ ⁣ #sevan #eleccionesmunicipales #manifestacionpacifica
