Back in 2007 I was lucky to road-trip out with friends to paint at my first B-Girl Be Summit at Intermedia Arts in Minneapolis. I can’t believe this weekend is their 10 year reunion exhibition! I am so honored to be an exhibiting Artist. Show opens June 11 and runs thru August 22, 2015. So happy and proud of the work Intermedia Arts continues to do!
This Friday we celebrate the release of our 2nd issue of MUTANTES! Art Zine! Art, grooves and great people will gather. Come kick off summer with us at Pilsen Art House for the “All of Me” Body Positivity and Zine Release Party!

The last two weeks I’ve been working on a neat project for this “Back Panels” show taking place tonight at Solid State Goods in Pilsen, Chicago.
Back in the late 70’s and thru the 80’s folks used to get artistic on their denim and leather jackets do-it-yourself style.
I can’t wait to see what all the artists have come up with!

Art is what makes us human. The arts brings people together. It brings us hope, love and light.
The people took over Lake Shore Drive last night here in Chicago in the name of Michael Brown. They woke those in motion just moving along on their routine commute. Some were bothered but I know others were moved. You are not human if you are not moved when you see people around you standing up for what is right, for justice.
Tomorrow Quennect 4 Gallery & Pachanka Music have put together a show called “Rebels Never Die: Resistencia Cultural”. I’ll be exhibiting a new painting inspired by a young girl’s right to education. So many young girls worldwide are denied this right because of socio economic status, gender stereotypes and religious customs or traditions.

“We honor our indigenous roots, unique cultures and resistance movements through art, music and community dialogue revolving around shared anti-colonial values to create a space for dialogue with the urban, native and affected community.”
Dia de los Muertos festivities begin this weekend! The souls of our ancestors and other loved ones that have passed on return to visit and walk among the living.
