This piece was inspired by my unexpected visit to La Perla, a slum barrio along the coast in San Juan, PR. This is from my Modern Rooftops series which is all about the idea if walls could talk. Through my travels and having lived abroad, I have visited many old villages and poor favelas full of colorful people and histories. So many walls have been around for centuries and have "heard" so many stories. The heavy textures layered in my work tell my story hence giving history to my painted walls.
