BX People (2022) Target - 215 East Fordham Road (Bronx, NY) Months ago I was approached by Target to submit a couple of ideas for a mural in a new store they were planning to open in my old neighborhood of Fordham. Just a block away from my last apartment before moving to the Yankee Stadium area. They liked my ideas and I was chosen to create a painting for the store that was made into a mural. It was a great experience, and not only I was able to create a piece that in my opinion represents The Bronx, but I was also invited to participate in the campaign they launched for the inauguration, with my artwork and in a cool video. Overall it was an amazing experience and I am very proud of it! You can visit the store and the mural at 215 East Fordham Road (BX), and don't forget to take pictures and tag me!!
Nature Quilt (2022) Jerome Gun Hill Business Improvement District and NY Department of Transportation Gun Hill Road and Jerome Avenue, Bronx, NY. Nature Quilt is a mural that represents the multiculturality of The Bronx and the Jerome-Gun Hill area. It is a patchwork of patterns with leaves, flowers, stars, bright colors and eyes mirroring the diversity of the community. It is designed to bring joy and happiness to the events that will take place in that plaza for a year. It will contrast with the dark asphalt around it and it mimics Nature, from the park just across the street. Created as part of an initiative of the Jerome Gun Hill Business Improvement District to beautify and bring to life an underutilized area, this mural brings some happiness to this corner of the Bronx, making the wait for the bus or your lunch break brighter. It was an awesome experience, where we invited the community to come on Sunday to paint and prep the area.
Growing Knowledge (2022) Bronx Bound Books Bookstore on Wheels, owned by Latanya Devaughn. It is a mobile bookstore that travels throughout the borough. Especially to neighborhoods where it is needed the most. The idea of Bronx Bound Books is to be a beautiful bus, traveling throughout The Bronx.“Every neighborhood in The Bronx deserves a bookstore, even if it’s just for one day” --Latanya DeVaughn
Be A Rainbow (2021) Uptown Grand Central 125th Street Between Park Ave. and Madison ave. Harlem, New York. This mural was created after the COVID pandemic, while restrictions are still lifted and we are all trying to return to some type or normalcy. It was also done in June 1st, starting Pride Month. Let's all be a rainbow instead of a cloud!
Amuleto (2019) Uptown Grand Central 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.
