A proud native and community activist from East Los Angeles, Leo Limón’s art engages marginalized spaces in the urban fabric of his hometown. Yielding a place for Chicanos in the cultural landscape of America is an ongoing labor of love for Limón. In Caminos, the cactus(nopal)bearing fruit (tunas)symbolizes the nourishment of Mexican culture that informs his Chicano aesthetic in Los Angeles, represented by palm trees.
