About the Artist

Roberto is currently an emerging artist in printmaking based in Madison, Wisconsin who emphasizes the issues of migration with Mexico and Central America. His work speaks to the growing misrepresentation that the United States views migrants. As a first-generation Mexican American, he expresses his knowledge through printmaking acting on the social issues that deal with racial, political, and environmental problems. He graduated from Western Illinois University in the Spring of 2018 with a degree in Graphic Design and a Minors in Marketing.

I was a recipient to Education Graduate Research Scholars fellowship, American Advertising Federation Award, Advance opportunity Fellowship, and Paul M. Binzel Grant.


Roberto on his work: "In my practice I have always pursued a purpose to represent my views through art that can provide a positive impact that can bring communities together."


About the Project

The Wisconsin Historical Society's COVID-19 Poster Project is a series of 11 posters designed and created by Wisconsin artists. Starting in April of 2020, one poster will be released per week. Public information posters have long been a part of history.


This project features Wisconsin artists and their representations of the COVID-19 pandemic through a new, relevant public information poster. These posters, created by Wisconsin artists during the COVID-19 pandemic, will become part of the collections at the Society where they can be viewed and appreciated by future generations.
