Art for Social Justice: Ricardo Levine Morales

Ricardo Levine Morales' artwork is a fusion of creativity and activism. From his experience in both the social justice movement and the artistic community, he has created a body of work that speaks to issues of fundamental significance. Topics included range from labor issues to global warming, from independent alternative media to world peace.

Most of Ricardo's work is fairly literal, with his intended message literally spelled out across the canvas for you. Nonetheless, his use of words and imagery in combination is extremely compelling. Morales' work is a prime example of how art can be aesthetically pleasing and still make an explicit statement.

Here's a sample of some of my favorite pieces. To see more of his work, visit Ricardo's site here.
