Art brings healing as the Mission fights gentrification

Art brings healing as the Mission fights gentrification | Salvadorans | Scoop.it
Art brings healing as the Mission fights gentrification Pulled in as if by centripetal force, I saw the stunning women from the Chulita Vinyl Club spinning. Looking closer at them, I saw images of the neighborhood’s struggles — burning Victorian buildings, a portrait of Alex Nieto, who was killed by police — and its iconography, in the form of Mayan and volcanic gods. Rojas, 36, wanted to create a positive community response to the “large, scary, looming monster” of gentrification. “People invested heavily in creating the community of this neighborhood,” he told me. In addition to Rojas’ large artworks, “¡Géntromancer!” includes a broadsheet with a wide variety of students, teachers and poets responding to the theme of gentrification. Contributors include everyone from young students in San Francisco’s juvenile justice system to San Francisco’s poet laureate, Alejandro Murguía. After learning the basics through Precita Eyes’ arts education programs, he went on to study art at California College of the Arts and Boston University. “The landlord was able to get much more in rent than what we were paying, so he basically said he could give some money to lawyers or he could give it to us,” Rojas said. After watching similar stories play out recently for his Misionero friends and neighbors — many of whom had also fled war, poverty and violence in their home countries — Rojas realized that displacement would have to be a subject for his work. The pieces reflect all of Rojas’ influences — the classic mural techniques of Mission artists like Juana Alicia, the La Palma-style folk art traditions of El Salvador, the Voltron cartoons of his childhood, and the Pop Art history he studied in art school. “I’m very intentionally taking the artistic traditions that exist and combining them with contemporary subject matter,” he said.
