The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth
By Raul Baltazar
100 x 100cm
‘The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth’ is an analogue or hand cut collage. The composition is of an assortment of images from the 1990s, which have been sourced from an array of printed media including magazines, flyers, books, and even invitations. The explosion of images captures the onset of globalization, and mirrors back the visual content and media that have informed human consciousness and subjectivity over the last several decades. At the same time, it offers a nonlinear narrative of late 20th century history with which to now reckon with and make sense of.

Raul Baltazar is a Los Angeles based artist working in a variety of mediums including collage, performance, video, painting, and community-based projects. His work is often driven by the struggle of Mestizo, Xicanx, POC and Mesoamerican Indigenous communities and their revolutionary vision for change in the context of Los Angeles. In this way, Baltazar seeks to decolonize contemporary art production by rooting his practice in the research of ancient cultures.
Baltazar received his MFA in Public Practice from Otis College of Art and Design in 2013, and his BFA in Sculpture and New Genres from Otis College of Art and Design in 2008. He has exhibited extensively in Los Angeles, and internationally and was the recipient of the California Community Foundation (2015), The Armory Teaching Fellowship, (2016), and Shortlisted for LA County Arts Commission (2015).
