"HIGH TIDE" is a representation of the expected sea level rise caused by global warming that will have Miami under water. "Visualizing the rise in tides reminded me of the hurricane Katrina aftermath and all of the animals left stranded on the roofs of houses and cars. The dog on the car is a representation of our will to stay afloat and struggle to survive the changing times.

While painting in Querétaro, Mexico in 2015, I came across a child no older than 6 years old, holding his younger sister in his lap while sitting next to a basket of candy and bubblegum. I realized this was a common trend there. Children were painting their faces and and dressing up to helpfully increase their sales.

Most of them come from extremely poor families that migrate from the countryside into the city looking to better their living situation. While painting this mural I found that a lot of these kids aren't forced to sell their candy and snacks by their parents, most of the kids choose to work in order to be able to afford basic things like school supplies.

Thanks to everyone who came out to the opening and special thanks to the @stolenspacegallery family for their continuous support.

Correr goma (running with a tire), is a game we played as kids in Dominican Republic.

Growing up in a rural part of the country, we weren't able to have toys or video games, so we would make different ways of entertainment. We would use old motorcycle tires and use 2 sticks to push in the inner part to make it rotate while we ran. It is also being done by hitting the tire on the outside, with a stick as you run alongside.
While researching for this concept, I was able to trace this to the 1800s, and is still being done around the world by children in 3rd world countries. #throughtheperilsofouryouth

"Cigua", was also one of our neighbors nickname growing up. Cigua was overprotective of her daughter when we were kids. One of my best childhood friends had a crush on her daughter but she wouldn't let him around. -
I eventually moved to the states and a few years went by. My friend went on to date Cigua's daughter and eventually got her pregnant. Cigua found out about her daughters pregnancy when she was unable to hide it any longer. She beat her daughter that one day and her daughter had to be hospitalized. She ended up passing away later that night due to the complications.
