"I reference a Living Native Cultural Legacy of Abya Yala and incorporate the modern world. I draw what I see, and change it with imagination by acting as a prism that reflects beautiful rainbow colors."
—From Brandywine Workshop and Archives records

"Leo Limón's print L.A. Greenhouse Premiere comments on urban pollution as a contribution to the "Greenhouse Effect." The print's central motif is a figure with an Indian headdress (alluding to the artist's heritage, which is Native American and Mexican) and dressed in business clothes running across a blue sky holding a small red truck with a camper in the back. The boldness of Limón's lines and his use of bright colors suggest motion and chaos. Pollutants are symbolized by a camper truck, airplanes, cars, and large buildings. The disruption of human life and destruction of plant life are indicated by hearts and colorful plants tossed about in the sky."
