Juan R. Fuentes (b. 1950 Artesia, New Mexico). As a cultural activist/artist/printmaker, I have dedicated my work to supporting and being part of a global movement for social change. My works have addressed issues that relate to local communities of color, social justice, peace, and international struggles for liberation. My works reside in various private collections, and museums and I have exhibited both locally and internationally. My early poster art is now part of the historic Chicano Poster Movement. Currently I’m a visiting artist at the San Francisco Art Institute where I teach relief printmaking.
