Artist's description:

This work is inspired by the struggle for rights in a favela in Lima (Villa el Salvador). The small images on the background tell the story of its beginnings, the struggle of women and mothers to give their children something better, the children living in poverty and their families trying to build a home in the middle of a desert area on the outskirts from Lima. The phrase in colorful letters says "I also have dreams" and is painted in the popular style called "chicha" in the favelas (many colors) The "chicha signs" are now starting to be very popular in the Latin American pop art.
