Staff Pick: ‘Arturo Alonzo Sandoval: 
Two Perspectives’

For artist Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, this is as personal as it gets. His new, political art series — rooted in his experience in the Vietnam War and up to the politics of today — is based on the flag. “The design of the flag for the United States of America seemed the ideal format on which I could incorporate many images, text and materials to depict my emotions, visual and political issues,” he said. “The American flag is also a well-known pop symbol to all audiences and would surely attract the attention of non-art oriented spectators.” Another image is even more timely. Sandoval explained that the kissing Trump and Putin dual portraits “was appropriated from Russian graffiti found on Facebook.”
