Jose Raya is an artist from the Pilsen neighborhood in the south side of Chicago who creates mixed media paintings with a social focus. He enjoys creating paintings that merge pop culture with politics, of both the past and present, while telling a story to the audience. Jose has been selected to exhibit his work in our May 2018 show, CounterCulture: Hidden Stories of Chicago Past and Present.
