Hand-signed Silkscreen print

1980 I created this silkscreen street poster which also
ran as a front cover for the LA WEEKLY newspaper. It was
a time when people were seriously wondering if nuclear war
would break out between the Soviet Union and the United
States. My artwork struck a cord with people and proved
to be incredibly popular."
poster was included in The Path of Resistance, an
exhibit of contemporary protest art held at New York City's
Museum of Modern Art in 2000. Organized by Joshua Siegel
and Susan Kismaric, the exhibit traced 40 years of socially
critical and politically charged art.
artwork was also exhibited at the Pasadena Museum of California
Art (PMCA) in an exhibit titled Serigrafía, which
ran from January through April, 2014.
