The art work of Quique Aviles spans over three decades in the united states. Originally from El Salvador, Aviles arrived in Washington D.C as a fifteen year old. He became a writer and a trouble maker from the get go. Aviles has been writing and preforming his monologues and poetry about the realities of Latinos and people of color in the united states for almost forty years. This website will give you hints and clues about the periods of an artistic process of discovery. It is safe to say that the vast majority of the work that is engulfed in the poetry, performances and visual work are based on true stories. Aviles is first and foremost a story teller. The story telling can shape itself in the forms of musical, visual, and literary pieces. Here are some work samples. (From QQ Artworks) 

Directed and produced by St. Clair Detrick-Jules, DACAmented is a short documentary featuring nine fearless young DACA recipients who narrate their wrenching stories about navigating life under Trump, and in so doing they give voice to the 800,000 DACA recipients--and the 11 million undocumented immigrants--in the United States (From DACAmented)
