Erik Ravelo is a Cuban born artist who fled to Argentina to pursue his dreams of becoming an artist at the age of 18.

His ‘Los Intocables’ series focuses on the inalienable rights of the child (“The right to childhood should be Untouchable”) and showcases (in a shocking and dramatic nature) children crucified and mounted on the backs of various cultural icons and archetypes.PRIEST3
