If My Friends Could See Me Now

If My Friends Could See Me Now

PACITA ABAD. If My Friends Could See Me Now, 1991.

Description:
I worked on a series called Immigrant Experience. These are paintings portraying the American immigration experience of people of color - those from Asia, Africa and Latin America. They had come to America for a variety of economic and political reasons. I personally can identify with immigrants because I am one of them.

Medium:
Painting
