“My art is my way of honoring my family and my roots, and it imagines a new world where we are honored and celebrated.”
Blurb in the Monterey County Weekly:
I’m working with smaller pieces. I have 55 gallon oil drums. I went to the place where they well oil and asked “what you do with the [drums] once you’re done?” They said “you can have them because we just recycle them.” People see [the oil drums] as trash cans; I saw canvases. The cooperative [Urban Artists Collective] is always doing things together. I painted [the drums] all yellow, put them together and said “This is a canvas. Pick a side.” One of them put acrylic paint on it. It’s going to be a gallery piece. There’s one out on the street, that’s a public piece. It’s outside Cherry Bean on Main Street. People have been putting everything on it. Because Salinas is very hard on graffiti, I created a sponge for it. It absorbs everything, that urge [to write] “I was here.” It works. I have some offers to put them in parks, in public areas where people, teenagers, are congregating, so that instead of going after benches or restrooms or the walls, they can
put whatever they want to put on the oil drums.
Glow’s Coffee will be serving coffee and tacos (for an additional fee)
The Amazing Clementine will be offer face painting (for an additional fee)
