The program from the MAPP August 1rt is ready!

The MAPP is a bi-monthly neighborhood inter-cultural arts event that transforms garages, cafes, studios, gardens, and local businesses into make-shift arts & performance spaces where daily life meets artistic innovation and expression.

El MAPP es una colaboración de artistas plásticos, músicos, poetas y teatreros que busca llevar el arte a la calle usando espacios alternativos como garages privados, sótanos y estudios de arte. Es una pequeña fiesta que ocurre cada 2 meses para infundir creatividad
a nuestras vidas.

This body of work was created as a "thank you" to a small group of friends, whom I hold a special place for deep within my soul. Without their love, generosity, and encouragement - none of this would be possible. The work consists of 10 individual series of screen prints. Every print within each series differs from the rest.
