Morales is a social movement artist and activist. He works out of a storefront studio in Minneapolis. He uses his art to engage with communities and movements to help them counter the toxic messages that keep them from developing their power.

Born in the coffee-growing regions of western Puerto Rico, he moved to the United States as he entered his teen years during a time of political upheaval.
