Eric Velasquez


Looking For Bongo

PreS—An Afro-Latino boy searches for his missing stuffed toy. The adorable toddler, depicted charmingly with a puffy Afro, protruding tummy, inquisitive eyes, and pj's, inquires after the whereabouts of his beloved Bongo. The warm oil paintings illuminate in obvious and not-so-obvious ways the family's love of music, literature, and their African roots. Velasquez's Grandma's Records makes a cameo during the boy's bedtime ritual. And as in that previous title, this work's celebration of the diversity within Latinx culture will warm hearts.
