Hermanos en el Camino, Migrant Shelter, Ixtepec, Oaxaca

Beyond excited at the opportunity to paint a mural at Hermanos en el Camino, a migrant shelter located in Ixtepec, Oaxaca, Mexico this past July. The mural was created with input from the migrant community staying at the shelter- even the title “La vida tiene colores para ti” (Life Has Colors for you) was part of this collaborative process. The project took a week to complete and ended with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration. What an unforgettable and amazing experience this was! I feel really grateful!

Downtown Redwood City, CA

Recently, I was commissioned to create a bike rack mural for the City of Redwood City. Titled “La cosecha de la esperanza - The Harvest of Hope” to honor the contributions of farmworkers, this project aims to provide additional bicycle parking for the increasing number of bikers in the city (Main & Broadway St, Downtown Redwood City)

Transbay Transit Center, Downtown San Francisco

In August 2018, I was selected to paint a mural at the new Salesforce Transit Center in San Francisco, as part of of the Artspan’s Transit Center Mural Project. The Transit Center is an innovative and sustainable new San Francisco landmark that transforms a transportation hub into an urban experience including a rooftop park, a bus bridge, retail spaces and much more!  Myself, alongside with other 37 Artspan muralists were selected to create semi-permanent murals on the ground retail space windows.

I completed this mural project over the span of 5 days including a live painting demonstration during the Grand Opening & Mural Unveiling on August 11th, 2018.

The mural in its entirety is 40 feet long and 7 feet tall.
