This Piece is about interracial relationships, it is dedicated to my girlfriend, I am Latino half Mexican/Colombian she is half Egyptian/Sudanese. The piece is entitled irreLOVEnt, expressing my ideology of how irrelevant race, language, social, and financial back ground is, it does not matter where someone is from, it matters where their heart is.
Kiber_all is a conceptual design to renovate the extreme necessity of one of the Largest Slums in the world KIBERA, with over 1 million inhabitants and half the population being HIV positive, 1 out of 300 have access to proper sanitation and the own Kenyan Government refusing acknowledgement of it as a settlement, meaning no schools, medicinal clinics, sanitation, water points, electricity, sewage, dumping site, etc. It was this site that I chose to design and revivify through sustainable design and creativity.
Buddha, represents the dichotomy of the human mind, body and spirit. We all have an energy inside of us (aura) and when used collectively via chi we can maintain great health mentally, physically, and emotionally. There are two visual distinctions in this mural illustrating the ever popular yin and yang philosophy using a calm blue along with an aggressive red. I use this specific combination of forces as it corresponds to the balance in nature emitting a more vibrant alignment eliminating any imbalances, thus creating a more golden life. My piece then enters into the 3rd dimension by exercising the art of fitness known as Yoga. This creation then comes alive and full of energy giving off its spiritual healing established by powerful, yet peaceful foundations of relaxation. Through proper meditation and breathing, one can use thought to control the body and use physicality to ease the mind giving way to an amazing nirvana, as intense bodily pressures filters through the mind accepting the most truest serenity. A life without any euphoric realms make all dreams and desires irrelevant!
Deadttached is a piece dedicated to Palestine, where for over half a century it has been occupied and unjustly abused. The world has become numb and detached from this situation and others like it. The image portrays an anonymous U.S. soldier about to kill a Palestinian Freedom Fighter, the bullets say “fundead by:” and what im trying to say that we all are part of this catastrophe and need to do something about it, for one educated ourselves, and second involving oneself through protest and so forth.
