Artist and activist Phil America focuses his work on social issues like class, gender and race. “Art is a language everyone can speak,” Phil says about his work. As an activist, he is philosophical, “The biggest criminal is the one who puts the laws of the land above their own morals.” Having lived all around the world and having seen all sorts of poverty, Phil says, “Living in poverty does not make you poor. What makes you poor is being complacent and having poor character.” Please consider whether a friend or colleague might benefit from this piece and, if so, share it.
