I was honored to photograph three beautiful generations of Polynesian dance teachers, or “Kumu”, and create a mural for them. Lani, Lillian and Makana keep culture alive and vibrant at the Makana Halau dance studio in Alameda. The mural is now up in the Healing Garden at the corner of Webster and Taylor as part of an art installation project by the West End Arts District.
Mahalo for sharing your space and ideas. Special thanks to Adán Gutierrez-Gallegos for your creativity, support and help.

“Solidaridad/ Solidarity” mural was created as part of a neighborhood mural project organized by the Unity Council in Fruitvale, CA in the Summer of 2020. I designed the imagery in collaboration with my artner, Adán Gutierrez-Gallegos, and we painted it on International Blvd at 34th in Oakland, CA. The featured quote by Gabby Rivera was included with her blessing, in both Spanish and English.

This is a mural, “Daddy Changed the World”, is dedicated to Gianna Floyd (George Floyd’s daugher). Originally painted at Feathered Outlaw in Alameda, CA 2020, and currently lives at the Art Garden in the Taylor Lot of Alameda (Taylor Ave @ Webster). It was painted in collaboration with Adán Gutierrez-Gallegos.
