Murals are such an important part of San Francisco's personality and is amazing the amount of urban artists constantly creating more and more!

During the months of September and October I was fortunate enough to get involved in the restoration campaign for the historic Women's Building : MaestraPeace mural.

A group of women mentor a younger generation in the art of mural making and allowed us to fix and repaint their monumental art piece.

The mural was painted in 1994 by Juana Alicia, Miranda Bergman, Edythe Boone, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Meera Desai, Yvonne Littleton and Irene Perez, and many helpers. 
Special thanx to them for sharing the knowledge!

Here are more links to the restoration process....

Other murals that I like a lot are the ones of Jet Martinez that can be found all over the city, he is originally from Mexico but lives in San Fran with his family.

Amigas // Girlfriends

From cigar boxes, to books, doors and drawers I made some illustrations for a Women's Art Exhibit with Alexandra Bloom, Marsha Shaw and Gina M. Contreras.

I used the 'surrealist method', just started painting random shapes to start building up whatever creatures came into my mind.
Come visit the exhibit!

Ramones: Gabba Gabba Hey

Susanita's Little Gallery Presents:
Ramones: Gabba Gabba Hey

One of my pieces is part of the fifth Susanita's Little Gallery show, a tribute to the Ramones.

Susanita's Little Gallery and all the artists in the show make a collaboration with Acción Alegra, an ONG devoted specially to offer education and sanity to children in need from Togo, donating the 20% of the sales from the exhibition.

Come visit the gallery and let me know what do you think of the art?

I made a Monotype with Acrylics, a psychedelic experimental look for the song You are gonna kill that girl
