Historical Context:
"My name is Javier Salazar Rojas, I go by the artist name Deported Artist. I love to paint in different mediums like acrylic, oils, aerosols and also do a lot of digital art. My inspiration for my pieces comes from my life struggles and from my culture. My paintings address the need for Immigration reform, Farmworker rights, and the need for change in the face of social injustices. My goal as an artist is to give a voice to the unheard and shed light on issues affecting our community." - Deported Artist
