  • LOVE NOW
    Mural commission for Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce's Orange Walls project. This message was inspired by a graffiti artist who wrote LOVE NOW around the city of Chicago in the early 90's. LOVE NOW's current work can be seen here.
  • WITH ALL OF OUR MIGHT
    Mural done with 9 youth apprentices/collaborators for Yollocalli Arts Reach during the summer of 2013. Yollocalli Arts Reach, a youth initiative of the National Museum of Mexican Art, is a platform for innovative, urban art practices that generate youth agency. The Yollocalli model is based on creating a space for experiential learning, collaboration with emerging artists, and the autonomy for youth to realize their own vision. Originating from the heart of Pilsen, Yollocalli is a safe and nurturing environment that enables a progressive dialogue in urban and youth culture.

  • AMOR
    2004 commission for the Chicago Transit Authority's California Station on the Congress/Douglass Blue Line.

    The circular flight of birds from heart to heart suggests the passing of love from person to person and place to place as well as reflecting the coming and going of train passengers. The migration of birds from clear skies to rainy endorses the virtue of promoting love through happiness and hardship.

  • THE CHILDREN'S PLACE
