"I Wish I Could Be Like a Bird..." by Wesley Yamaka 1974

I Like Mike's Mid-Century Modern

This is an original artist's print, signed and numbered by Wesley Yamaka himself, still in the framing from the 1970's. A lovely piece, it features words that Nina Simone sang quite movingly in her powerful 1967 hit song "I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free". An activist and a minister as well as a famed graphic artist, Wes Yamaka spent part of his youth in a Japanese internment camp in World War II, an experience that contributed to his lifelong pursuit for social justice. Aluminum framing and red mating contribute to the charming overall impact of this framed vintage print.
