PASTOR JOSÉ ANTONIO GALVÁN
Twenty miles outside of Ciudad Juarez lies a private mental asylum named “Vision en Accion”. It provides refuge, safe housing, and a community to the area’s homeless, infirm, recovering addicts, and mentally ill. Jose Antonio Galvan, known by many as “El Pastor” is a born again street Pastor who founded the asylum after his own struggle with drug use and homelessness.
Aside from taking in the poor and ill, Jose paints and provides for the residents.
His works confront political hypocrisy, corruption, and the tragedies of cartel violence.
El Pastor’s artwork helps to fund the Vision en Accion.
