For the past three years I’ve been combining street art with fine art in an attempt to unify the two. The addition of bright colors and traditional Mexican artwork helped me bring my heritage to canvas. All of my most resent subjects are from the surrounding area of the southwest. They have ranged in many races and sex. The interweaving of lines and colors bring together images of empowerment. As a Mexican American I was raised to see how the influences of combining cultures could be beneficial to ones heritage. These images emphasize the mixing pot that we’re all a part of.
