Flying into the gallery and throwing up fresh paint, the “Take Flight” artists, Agana, Annie Preece, CAMER1, and Ivan “Gath” Preciado, took their art off the canvas and onto 1AM’s gallery walls.

We Are Crossing – Immigration Told with Street Art

This week we are taking a look at some recent works from artists around the world centered on immigration. Following last week’s writing on Borders, Enclosures, Walls, we will continue in the direction of the movement of people – immigration. People have always moved; it is what has given us our unique and beautiful differences in appearances and cultures! In today’s highly globalized world, however, it is now more difficult for people to move from one place to another than ever before. There are many components at work with this issue (employment, housing, education, health care, environmental resources, etc.), so the topic can be very complex and emotionally charged for many. Over the past couple weeks we’ve come across some paintings that address this topic. Have a look and see what these images may bring up in your own thinking!

Once an empire benefiting from the taking of land, resources and people from around the world, Portugal is now seeing its citizens emigrating to other countries in search of jobs and a decent life. Sepe’s timeline-like work serves as a historical archive, chronicling past to present.
