Sandía (Watermelon) is part of Vicente's ongoing Arroz con Popote series. Arroz con popote, to eat rice (pudding) through a straw, is Mexican slang used to describe a man as homosexual, with or without any intention to offend: "He likes arroz con popote." The piece pays homage to his heritage and identity. Considered Mexico's unofficial fruit for its colors that resemble the Mexican flag, watermelons are a frequent motif in works by Mexican artists, including in Frida Kahlo's last painting, Viva la Vida, Watermelons.
