Los Monstruos de la Fruitvale

Digital Design, 2015

Seeing a picture posted by┬áLeslie Lopez of a group of gentrifiers in the Fruitvale inspired me to remix the poster made with PODER in the Mission. Although hipsters are the manifestation of gentrification in places like the Fruitvale there are many forces behind them like bankers, the tech industry, developers, local government, etc. The fight is multifaceted and I am glad to be part of a movement that is taking up the struggle. Thanks to everyone who helped me name the monsters…
