VISITING SOUTH BRONX - NEW YORK

During my travel to New York City in Fevbruary and Manrch 2014 i made a tour through South Bronx, and it was a pleasure to have Ricky Flores showing me where he took his photographs in the 80"s he also took photos of me on thoses same places. We have been working in colaboration for 8 years now. His photographs has been a big inspiration for my paintings. I made a project at BRIC ARTS MEDIA - Brooklyn in collaboration with Cec Arts Link, funded by Rockefeller Institute, " Sounding Walls / Soando Paredes " ,where i were painting his photographys on the wall. Special thanks to Ricky Flores, Jeremy Thal, The POINT, Carey Clark and Tats Cru.
