Justice For Luis D. Gongora Pat

TwinWalls - Marina Perez Wong and Elaine Chu, Clarion Alley, 2018, Current

Working with the Gongora Family, Patrick Piazza originally created a poster in support of the for Justice For Luis. Luis D Gongora Pat was executed by the San Francisco police on April 7th, 2016 after two plan clothes cops responded to a 911 call. Marina Perez-Wong and Elaine Chu (TwinWialls Mural Company) then worked with the Gongora Family to develop Patrick’s poster into a mural design. The six ex-votos surrounding the center image tell the story of Luis’ life, from being born in the Yucatan, to moving to San Francisco to find work, though his eviction and execution while living in a tent encampment on the streets. CAMP, with assistance from Adriana Camarena, help facilitate the painting of this mural in solidarity with the Gongora Family.
