After writing a story about a fictional revolutionary movement called GANAS, Ernesto Yereno decided to turn his tale into a gallery show  of  stencil and collage on canvas, and rubyliths. “GANAS 2020” opens Saturday, Aug. 13 at Avenue 50 Studio in Highland Park.   The fictional GANAS is dedicated  to  “fighting for reform, empowerment and dignity,” according to information from Avenue 50 Gallery. In real life, Yerena, a native of El Centro, Calif., has combined his interest in social justice and art the founder and curator of the Alto Arizona Art Campaign and the We Are Human Campaign.

Avenue 50 Studio director Kathy Gallegos said artist Shepard Fairey, who is a supporter of the We Are Human Campaign, is planning to attend Saturday’s nights opening.

  1. Live by the gun, die by the gun……….

  2. Looks like a clone of a wore out Cliche’ . Nice technique, but no originality, just another stylized visual of a ideology that doesn’t work. DOn’t give up, just go home and mix more paint.
