Caras Lindas Books
Viajero’s artwork is informed by issues of race, migration and identity while exploring both the personal and historical memory of the two disparate worlds that I inhabit: the tropical landscape of Puerto Rico and the overpopulated cityscape of New York.
The goal of Caras Lindas is to serve in transforming the representation of Puerto Ricans for children. Without representation, children’s views of national reality and Puerto Rican identity are skewed. Children are curious, we should provide them with the opportunity to learn about Puerto Rican leaders; as well as, culturally and historically relevant places and things. Caras Lindas books and products provides them with that opportunity.
