Maybe you've seen them: a series of bright, colorful billboards with powerful messages of hope, in English and Spanish.

Like the one in Roslindale Square, big letters against a solid background: "It Ain't Easy, But Keep Going." The unsigned billboards have appeared in East Boston, Roslindale, Roxbury and Dorchester — Boston communities hit particularly hard by COVID-19.

They're the work of Gabriel Sosa. Sosa grew up in Miami, and is now a Visiting Lecturer at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. An an artist, teacher, translator, we spoke with him about his art.
