Born in Caracas, Venezuela, I have been an Austin resident for ten years. Originally from Caracas, Venezuela, my family and I emigrated to the USA when I was eleven years old. I didn't know a word of english and fitting in was difficult at first. Twenty something years later I now explore my identity as a Venezuelan living in the US through my art. Politics, social issues and pop culture all appear off and on throughout my work.
Murals are a fantastic way to create art that can be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. It doesn't have to hang in a gallery, you don't have to go to an art opening to enjoy it. It is out there for all to see, no matter what color your skin is or how much money you have in the bank. It is art for the masses.
