A letter from the editor:

Here at PHXTACO, the goal is to create a website where Phoenix artists can be seen side by side, to give perspective on the level of creativity happening in the city. I want people to love where they live and for PHXTACO to show them why they should. Usually, I only post artwork in Phoenix and surrounding areas, but now it’s shifting gears. Supporting Phoenix artists is the intent, and PHXTACO will follow them wherever they decide to spread love. I’m happy to make the first post featuring work outside Arizona from Phoenix-based artist Abro. This is meant to be more than a website, it’s a network. Love your city, support your city.

Dream Act Mural ~ Francisco Enuf Garcia

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Photo by Ms. Phoenix

From Francisco Gracia’s facebook:

On the left mid section of the piece you’ll notice half of Cesar Chavez’s face, further to the left you’ll also notice the United Farm Workers flag and people uniting to march for the Immigration Reform and the Dream Act. [ . . .]

The right side of the piece is half a face depicting Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the Arizona flag, and a Maricopa deputy in a mask holding a gun. In the background is a deportation van next to the city of Phoenix. Across the whole piece is also a scripture from the bible in Luke 6:45, “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. “
As you walk right to left while staring at the gun barrel, you notice the barrel is following you as you walk towards the left of the piece. It was painted to give the viewer an experience of what Immigrants in Arizona are feeling, intimidation with the fear of deportation.
