Title: La Nina
Dimensions: 20’ x 22’ Medium: Benjamin Moore Acrylic Exterior paint with Liquitex acrylics on cement wall. Location: 164 NW 20st Wynwood Miami 33127 Description: The headdress was created to depict women from various cultures with the goal to create a sense of self-identify. Throughout time crowns have given worth to individuals indicating their wealth and power as well as defining their influence within that society regardless of their gender or race. I want women to question their own identity, therefore the headdress is drawn in an abstract way to show that every woman wears a crown if she were only to be aware of herself and her own powerful strength.
Title: Discover Thyself
Dimensions: 20’ x 20’ Medium: Benjamin Moore exterior acrylic paint with Liquitex acrylics on cement wall. Location: 164 NW 20st Description: Mural depicts a human cyborg performing experiments on her schematics. This piece was created to inspire interest in electronics and industrial design while instigating a question about whether the cyborg is controlling the electrical system or being controlled by it. Incorporating the electrical wires coming from the building was well received by the local community as a creative inspiration.
Title: Feather Weight
Dimensions: 4’ x 8’ Medium: Exterior Acrylic paint on wood panel Location: Miami Zoo Description: Artwork was commissioned by the Zoo Miami Foundation. This piece captures the beauty and weightlessness of an elephant in motion while providing a calming and happy mood to its environment.
