Not only is the result pleasing to the eye, it reminds the viewer of our connection with nature.
Ernesto's purposeful art is a reminder of the relationship all living creatures share with each other. His message is especially significant today when so much protection is needed. Colorful, whimsical and hinting at so many possibilities and interpretations, Ernesto's art is one of a kind.
