"Amuleto" 125th Street & Park Ave. Harlem, New York.
This mural was done trying to bring up a conversation about who is looking at us and how sometimes being out of sight is safer. When some communities start to be in the point of view most of the times is a bad sign, the people watching will try to change you, so you look more appealing for the ones to come. Resilience is the way to go, resistance, community United... I'm leaving here my "Amuleto" I hope luck is our side.
It was done by uptown artists during a big celebration bringing the community together having fun and creating memories. Uptown Grand Central (particularly Ayana) coordinated over 50 artists to give color and beauty to the neighborhood.
Another amazing day at Boogie at the Boulevard happened this Sunday. I put together 5 amazing artists to paint live with me and the Bronx Community. Earlier in the week I asked through my social media what they would like me to paint and "Cats & Butterflies" was a pretty awesome answer, so this is my take on it!
It's always so much fun to go out, paint, talk to the community, share time, laughs and dance moves! Thank you to the artists, to the volunteers and to all the friends that came out to Boogie on the Boulevard once more.
So many artists and public gathered at Tompkins Square Park to participate in the 9th Music Festival. I was invited to come and paint live during the concert. I met great artists, collaborated with Carlos Pinto and had the best time in a wonderful Lower East Side afternoon!
I continued with my series "Nature is Watching You" with a special Still Life Composition.
