Tijuana, Mexico becomes number 32

It has been a minute since the last Free Beans Run in Austin, Texas. This past Sunday I had a chance to walk the streets of Tijuana and I was able to drop a set of 24 original Beans. The streets were very busy and as always the locals were very puzzled when they noticed my activity. I am always amazed how many feelings and emotions run through me when doing this project… I have done it so many times that I thought that by now, I would have lost […]

More Free Beans for 2017

What started out as a game has turned into some sort of compulsion. I still cannot believe that very soon will mark the 4 year anniversary for The Free Beans Project. To date, 30 cities have been hit with the project and I am proud to say the Beans have been spread out in all three Americas: North, Central and South America. Dig this: In four years The Free Beans Project has produced over 700 pieces of original art and that is one very big art installation. I must share with you […]

Downtown Disney completes the trifecta

As a Southern California resident, it would not be a proper summer vacation without a trip to Disney with my children.

It was unfortunate that we happen to visit during a massive heat wave but fortunately the hotel we booked has a beautiful pool. As always I find a way to multitask and luckily my kids are very well aware that whenever we travel together a Free Beans […]

Free Beans in Medellin, Colombia

Realidad Magica (Magical Reality) is what this set of Free Beans is entitled… fitting since most of you may already know that Colombia is said to be the mother of Magical Realism. As always I had a fantastic time getting to know the city hiding my Beans in plain site. For the dispersal of this set, the neighborhood of El Poblado was chosen because of the proximity to the hotel where I happen to currently reside. I find El Poblado to be very posh with its fine dining, fine art […]

You Win!!!

One week ago I happened to stumble upon a stack of old school Viviendo Beans Stickers. I naturally began thinking of what I could do with them since I prefer timeline continuity of my work out there on the streets. So then, I decided on a free sticker pack mailing and I proceeded to advertise the event on social media. Granted I do this all the time but never on a vintage item. The response was too much to handle and less than 8 hours later I was out of […]
