Tierra Y Libertad

Andrade was born in Acuña Coahuila, Mexico. He relocated to San Antonio in his youth and studied Graphic Arts at San Antonio College. During this time he became involved in the community and a different type of socially engaging art by volunteering on numerous mural projects. Fernando works in both realistic and abstract styles and is interested in the representation of spirituality and social political events. He was moved to create this series of drawings, Tierra y Libertad, after the disappearance of a close friend due to drug cartel violence. It is an attempt to insinuate the many ways people suffer mutilation and death in Mexico by using common games played by children. This body of work is an extension of a previous series, Jugando a la Guerrita, which features the single figure of a young boy, a wooden stick and violent language relating the issues of innocence and corruption, which will continue to affect generations to come.

    Owned by a man with beard enough for two, Mark Vollmer’s coffee trailer offers quality coffee and pastries to cappuccino-craving commuters at 410 and Nacogdoches. In the time since it’s opened, the area surrounding this coffee trailer has transformed into a hub of food vendors with varied seating options, some natural greenery and occasional live music. Grab an iced latte (there’s house-made almond milk for vegans, too) and admire one of the classic muscle cars that frequently stop by.
