Rosita Adelita Says ¡Sí, Se Puede!
Chicago artist Robert Valadez created a Mexican version of the famous World War II poster, “Rosie the Riveter.”
Valadez chose to combine Rosie the Riveter with La Adelita, a fictional character from the Mexican Revolution because he says both are feminist archetypes that speak to the empowerment of women.
It took three months for Valadez to complete the acrylic painting on canvas. He used red, white and green colors to symbolize the colors of the Mexican flag and gave the background a texture to add more visual interest.
