Artist Statement of Work

Tell us about your work (style, approach, philosophy, subject and/or theme):

My mother is a fine artist herself, so I grew up in the art gallery scene all over the US and Puerto Rico. From setting up galleries, social networking, promoting and breaking down events. All of this prepared me once I started to create my own style of art. Growing up in Puerto Rico, graffiti was everywhere, and I dedicated my life to it. From painting in the streets of PR to now curating the largest Graffiti Gallery in San Antonio, I am only looking for new things to continue to showcase my passion for the arts.


I love teaching students about the history of Graffiti and its impact on HIP HOP Puerto Ricans had from the 70s-2020.

Teaching includes color theory, Spray Paint, materials, mural concepts, and how to start and complete a mural,
