Mural artist uses graffiti art to make indigenous presence known
If Jaque Fragua had only five more dollars in his pocket, he would buy spray paint and paint some walls while it lasts. “I don’t believe art is a luxury,” said Fragua, a multimedia artist who is part of the American Indian Mural Krew. “It’s a way of life; it’s something that’s necessary.”
Fragua, a Native American from the Walatowa village of the Jemez Pueblo, along with a few local and non-local artists, has completed a mural at Court Youth Center depicting Native culture and the Native presence here in Las Cruces and New Mexico.
