In this vibrantly colored print, a palatero (ice cream vendor) passes a house where a raid by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is underway. "STOP ICE" appears in bold letters on the palatero’s cart. Oree Originol is calling attention to the home immigration raids frequently conducted by ICE.
Originol is a self-taught Chicano visual artist from Los Angeles. He moved to the Bay Area to pursue his career as an artist and social activist and utilizes his platform to bring attention to issues largely affecting communities of color. He is also the creator of the Justice for Our Lives campaign, for which he has completed 75 portraits honoring victims of violence perpetrated by US law enforcement.
