Artist Jose Manuel Islas is a self-taught artist from Michoacan, Mexico, now residing in Daly City, Calfornia.
Jose Manuel has been influenced by the cultural patrimony reflected in Mexico’s rich prehispanic culture. The exceptional beauty of the colorful masks, sculptures and paintings representing animals, guardian spirits to native people are the source of inspiration for artist Jose Manuel. His use of vibrant color is influenced by the bright and expressive colors commonly used by the artists of his hometown Michoacan, Mexico.

Join Librotraficante Bay Area for an evening of readings from books banned under Arizona’s racist House Bill 2281, which effectively outlawed ethnic studies in publicly funded schools of all levels. HB2281 was approved in the wake of Arizona’s draconian anti-immigrant bill SB 1070. In solidarity with the struggle to defend ethnic studies in Arizona and beyond, Librotraficante founder Tony Diaz will join with Bay Area poets and writers, who will read from their own works as well as books banned under HB 2281.
~ Novelist Tony Diaz, El Librotraficante, leader of The Librotraficante Movement.
~ Poet Librotraficante Lips Mendez, aka Lupe Mendez, one of the original five founders of Librotraficante.
~ Poet Naomi Quiñonez, leader of the Bay Area Librotraficantes ~ Co-founder of Presente.org Roberto Lovato, with original prose. And more to be announced!
