A comprehensive survey of posters and other graphic works by activist Mexican-American artist Garcia, this volume encompasses a catalogue raisonne (illustrated with small color reproductions) of more than 100 silkscreen prints, lithographs and etchings, many addressing issues related to minority rights and international social, political and economic oppression. A thorough biographical essay discusses Garcia's career in the Bay Area, his contribution to the vital traditions of Chicano poster art, his noted "ideological portraits" (simplified, boldly colored portrayals of such figures as Nelson Mandela and Frida Kahlo), and his stylistic links to such Pop artists as Rosenquist, Indiana and Kitaj.
