Hi everyone- hope all is well.
On August 7, 2012- I had the honor of helping launch the "Jose Cuervo Tradicional MURAL Project"-
I shared a gallery space with 3 really cool artist- We had 2.5 hrs to create a painting that represented Mexican Heritage.
Being a 2nd generation Mexican-Cuban-American, I wanted to show a hybrid of visual icons, painted in acrylic.
Cheers and enjoy!
