Artist Statement

Public art reflects and represents the character of the community, their traditions,  inquietudes,  their past and present while bringing a sense of pride and the hope of better times.

Being aware that public art can serve as a bridge between diverse cultural backgrounds, this fact  provides me with a sense of purpose as it is a very powerful form of communication. It can link people together, stimulate a sense of pride within the community, and introduce the viewer to new ideas and perspectives. My work as a muralist is to gather those traditions, inquietudes, pride,  hope and translate them into a visual language using larger-than-life and  realistic images to relay this message.
