“Metaphor for freedom.”, Tijuana, Mexico (2015)

When I got to Tijuana I looked up and stared at the clouds, then at the birds, hopping from side to side. When I looked at the ground, I saw a wall made of metal and concrete; I looked at two families talking, from one side to the other. Two bloods divided by mankind’s irrationality.

 

I looked up again, searching for an explanation; maybe the birds could tell me more. I realized they were wiser. I looked up searching for freedom, but it was too high, too far away.

 

“Metaphor for freedom.” Tis but a word; I couldn’t imagine it, I couldn’t draw shapes, because I was unable to see them. I only used the shadow on the wall, to portray the division of that wall, between reality and how far it is from it. The wall is located in the center of the city, where the hangover of the future defeated lies, those individuals that can only look up.

 

We are nomads by nature, searching for the future incessantly. The day we decide to become better human beings, we’ll need to break those barriers. Then and only then, will we truly achieve freedom.

 

There are 11 million foreigners who managed to live without papers, I do not know if the future is on the other side, but it’s good to choose. It would be great to make the man in the suit, standing in front of the microphone, understand this.

“Identity”. A collab with the master @smitheone for the @mamutt project.

It is a collaborative work in which two artists reflect on the idea of belonging and by inhabiting this concept, they created a mural. The variety of bodies floating, trying to live and coexist with the space around them. The intention was to generate an intimate situation in the midst of chaos of a huge and diverse city. Two bodies coexist in the immensity of this, floating in reality, joining to create a single and unique new entity.

2015 (PangeaSeed) – PangeaSeed, the international marine conservation organization, in collaboration with 1xRUN, Tony Delfino, and World Art Destinations, is pleased to announce the second annual summer series of its groundbreaking mural festival, Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans. The festival, which creatively beautifies the surrounding area, while bringing education, connection, and inspiration to the community, will take place from July 17 – 26, 2015 on the Caribbean island of Cozumel, Mexico.

PangeaSeed’s Sea Walls: Murals for Oceans is the first movement of its kind helping to save our seas via public art and activism (ARTivism). The festival will feature 30 world-renowned contemporary artists from across the globe, collaborating to bring vital ocean environmental issues into the spotlight. The festival’s educational workshops will engage local youth to learn more about critical marine environmental issues affecting their home island, and what they can do to help save our seas. Sea Walls aims to educate and inspire individuals and communities to protect the planet’s most important ecosystem: the ocean.

“The power of public art and activism has the ability to educate and inspire the global community to help save our seas. No matter where you are in the world, the ocean supplies us with every second breath we take and life on Earth cannot exist without healthy oceans. With dwindling global fish stocks, rising sea levels, and widespread pollution, whether you live on the coast, in the city or in the mountains, we should all feel responsible for the health of the oceans and life that lives within it,” says PangeaSeed Executive Director Tre’ Packard.

The artists will have the opportunity to experience the various marine ecosystems of Cozumel Island, and learn from local experts about environmental challenges they are facing. In turn, inspired by their immersive field trips, the artists will create a series of 30 large-scale ocean-themed murals on the island to help educate and raise greatly needed awareness within the local and tourist communities for the plight of our ocean and the life that calls it home.

Ciudad Juarez has several problems: what is up to us, we have been studying and developing proposals to create a new alternative cultural tourism for the same factor that over the years, has been given little or no importance being that culture is a weapon constructive progress, development and social integration at all levels.

 
To get to Ciudad Juárez, there are three modes: road, either coming from Janos, Chihuahua or Samalayuca, Chihuahua; by aerial means, reaching the airport Abraham Gonzalez; finally crossing any of the international bridges. Any of these three media, present the traveler, tourist or visitor generally a bleak picture: by road and air, cherish a vision of a lost city, abandoned, like a huge aftermarket and iron thereof auto junkyards , this gives us, in contrast to the desert, the projection of a city alone, cold and reflects indifference from us.

 
When crossing the international bridges, we see whole streets and infrastructure damage, adding to the bridge of the Americas, an ad that dramatically demand that “we do not want more weapons” [NO MORE WEAPONS], suggesting to visitors that are enter an area where weapons, is like seeing a tree or another car likely will witness a bloody deed.

 

Colorwalk® have the idea of changing these scenarios; through walls intervention-cutural contextual importance in the PRONAF

 

Color Walk is a Initiative to establish a comprehensive route “Street Art” and collaborate in efforts to create a new cultural tourism to Ciudad Juarez.
