About Me// Artist Statement

I am a first generation Salvadorian/American artist from New York.  

“I choose to reflect the times and the situations in which I find myself. That, to me, is my duty... and at this crucial time in our lives, when everything is so desperate, when every day is a matter of survival, I don’t think you can help but be involved...

 

We will shape and mold this country or it will not be molded and shaped at all anymore. So I don't think you have a choice--

 

How can you be an artist and not reflect the times?”
