Painting Our Border Wall

This past weekend, shortly after I had finished painting my designated portion of the border wall, I was asked a series of questions during an interview. The question seemed very simple at first but as I applied the reasoning process I was taught many moons ago in a senior year Medical Ethics class, I came to find that I was treading very interesting water. The question was as follows: “Are artists responsible for changing the world?” I opened with a simple statement: if the responsibility to change the world was […]

Encinitas alley gets a new mural

What a joy it is to spend 4 days in an alley 2 blocks away from Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, California. I had the pleasure of meeting special people from many different ideologies and cultures and at the same time I was allowed to do what I do best, spread color where it needs it most. This project was made possible by the City of Encinitas Mizel Grant Program and the County of San Diego Community Enhancement Grant Program in collaboration with Encinitas 101 Mainstreet Association and Union Cowork.

LAAFing through the weekend!

This past weekend, March 31 thru April 2nd, the energy was definitely pushed to the max and thus carried unexpected weight to its viewers… so far as I could perceive anyhow; I can honestly say, that it seemed as if the wind was blowing in one common direction. Goals were met, mistakes were made, friendships were forged but above all; moments were shared with artists from all corners of Latin America. I was invited to paint live and to represent urban art. The event is put together by The Latin […]

On tap: skateboards

I am very excited to announce the addition of a new product to our arsenal. We now have super cool and artsy skateboards. Since back in 2012 when the Raices Antiguas Collection was produced, I knew that someday those designs would lend themselves very well for skateboards. For now I have only produced what I, a non skater, would refer to as “normal” skate blanks. But I am confident that I will be ordering more variety as soon as I finish this post. Look for these to be added to […]

Hard Times Hit UCSD

Exhibit: Hard Times Date: February1 – March17 Exhibit Description: A series of 18 pieces that were originally made in 2013 to commemorate the date in which the Latino race became the majority of the population in the state of California.
