Festive Left Friday Blogging: The art of Chavecito

No, this is not one his own paintings. I just find it interesting how once in while, Chavecito crops up in a work of fine art:

Chavecito in an art poster

I can’t remember where I found this on the Internets, but it’s a very cool poster. He seems to have a halo composed of news clippings, and the artist has emphasized the black part of his heritage, right down to the power salute. His features are more Africanized, and his complexion is a bit darker than it is in reality. The message is clear: Chavecito stands with, and for, the oppressed peoples of the world–particularly those of color.
