Doña Patria. Angurria flew in from the Dominican Republic to throw down his classic Dona Patria image on the BIG WALL at El Cem. Through rain and equipment issues he laid his biggest (and best?) lady and her classic boombox expressing her confidence and style. If not the top, one of the top two most impressive pieces in the project. Exito manito! Angurria: @angurria
Unmistakably. ROA. Our new friend ROA is a lesson on following your own path. Truly worldwide and reknown, ROA graced this town with his version of the red tailed hawk, the beloved Guaraguao. The perfect image for this old theater, his hawk watches over this sleepy part of the city. Find it and enjoy. Thank you Sir.
Resilience. BIRDO brought his big wall A game from the chilly town of Canada, In that unique multi facet style he laid down his hyper real puerto rican parrot, his geometry and his graphic wing, slicing and dicing his styles to come up with this crowd pleaser. Dayum Birdo. @jerryrugg
JC wanted to give the young gun Andres a chance to collaborate and he did not disappoint. Andres laid down his classic pattern in 9” black and JC threw down his classic Bear Champ on top. Graphic, bold but never basic. @jcrivera @andrescortes_aca
We’ve worked with uncle Epic and neph Andres before and know how they roll…quick, slick and pro. Their collaboration on this 70 footer “Spray for Peace” is well. dope. Spanning a large part of the Humacao Plaza its unfreakingmissable. Just keep the tree trimmed. @epicuno @andrescortes_aca
New wildstyle sensation Sergio brought his metal and 90’s hip hop to grind through this storytelling piece of the cacique king and his trusted lobo,,,in action. Sergio’s images are always flying off the piece and his colors pop to make his concepts come alive. This guy is taking off. @sergio_stuff
As usual, JC came to town to work. In this labor of love, JC blended his Bear Champ imagery and his fearlesss graphics across the top layer of the wall creating a timeless piece that looks like it was always there. Don’t stop homie. @jcrivera
Manuel further developing his “hyper-realism” style paints with a renaissance quality and modern flair. Painstakingly developing this piece over a couple/few weeks, Manuel put his soul into this one. A crowd favorite and car stopper, it gets even better as the sun starts to set. Exito Manuel! @manuel.morales.barrios
Rafique evolved this piece of trailblazing Humacao poet Anjelamaría Dávila over the course of many weeks. The result is an epic and multi-visual and layered mural in the Rafique style. This young guy is gonna be everywhere in a minute. Keep an eye on him. @rafique939
Puerto Rican Graf legend SKE showed up and taught lessons. Been painting walls since back in the day, SKE is appreciated for his classic style and iconic portraiture. SKE’s theme, inspiring youth (writers and non) is reflected in this beautiful portrait of this girl. Classic SKE. @theamazingske
The first mural p[produced for the project and the one that got everyone’s attention. EKO on his way through PR stopped a couple days in Humacao and laid down his flower wreath. Graffiti and flowers and a bunch of other interests drive this young artist and we’re happy he had the opportunity to paint for us in Humacao. Tranki bro. @ekosaurio
Justin rolled into town for a short visit to express his love for this hidden corner with his owl man. In his expressive otherworldly style Justin brought change and people to this corner to join him on his fantastic journey. Come back soon Juss. @mute0n
Carlos brought his fine art skills and his love of popular culture to bring you this ButtonsXMickey piece. It’s a game changer an perfect example of how urban art transforms. This piece led to a sidewalk repair, a repaired sitting area and now a building renovation on the corner that is a new must visit off the Humacao Plaza. Props Carlos. @ayala.art
“Reborn” Smite, ever interested in expressing his love for Puerto Rico and the hope that he and others share for a better country put his time and love into this one. Beautifying another corner of the city, off the plaza, SMITE did what he had to do. @smite_arte
Luis, a Puerto Rican fine contemporary artist brought his collage and painting imagery to grace the walls of Humacao in the Artist Alley. Yet another example of an artist with a unique style, Luis’ work subtlety portrays his themes through his characters and imagery. Invoking master painters juxtaposed with “found” urban advertisements. Take a moment to study this one. @12lpz
Part graphic designer, part graffiti artist, part sticker slapper, full stuffed animal toter, KRALZO finally got to paint his Wonder Woman X Kralzo painting he’s been carrying around for awhile. Adapted for the festival theme, “Vive Paz” has become a hood changer. @somekralzo
Wizard Skull flew in from NYC to bring his brand of desconstructed pop art to Humacao. Instead of a single mural he decided to further deconstruct and paint his characters across the city to create the Wizard Skull walking tour. His last effort, the entire family of the Simpsons was short lived tho getting destroyed by local vandals the very next day after he left. It lived briefly but it shined bright and is forever in our photo collection. Stay weird Wizard. @wizardskull
KAU raised her urban art game and painted the beautiful and sensual Goddess of Peace on her spot on the Dr. Vidal. The mystery will always remain however as to who inspired the piece and the model used. Niiice. @kau.tvrs
Wherever NEPO is, his heart is in Puerto Rico. We were excited to have NEPO travel a continent this time to get to us and put up his mark on this city center wall. Invoking Puerto Rico’s Pirate past and sea fauna, Nepo did not disappoint with his signature style and skills. See you soon brother. @nepoart2018
Heidi brought her BIG smile and skills to her Escondido wall. We’re really happy to have Heidi in the crew and she upped her game to complement our style. She’s already calling about the next project. @achemarte
Not all of our artists do it the same way. Part artist, part entertainer, part vandal, totally invited, Robots rolled into town the day of the festival and got to work. First hitting up the old police precinct next to W$ and then the condemned spot in town, Robots threw down a classic burner and then thicker in concept his bot house painter. Always welcome in our projects, Robots brings it and again is part of what makes our projects interesting. @shittyrobots
He’s everywhere. This time with Andres Cortes at his side. Thanks for your support, gangsta. @mtncolorscaribbean
Charlie flew through town between shows with a grin on his face and slapped up a bunch of TOTCHI pasteys. TOTCHI (Totally Chilling) is a welcome addition to the project. How many can you find? Mops don’t count. @charlie_ramirez
With the new new. His piece full of meaning and concept. Punta Santiago. @fisu00
The most positive vibe artist of the group, Popolo brings his love of art and people to his projects. Quick with a smile and a hug Popolo creates art for the people and they love it. An owl, a coqui and a sunflower make people smile everyday in Humacao. @popoloelpintor
Not all urban art is painted. Yarnbomber crocheted her way on to this crew and very much belongs among the painters. Ready to climb a statue and adorn it in crochet or scale a fence to hang her crochet letters, Yarnbomber can hang with us. @yarnbomber_pr
Humacao art professor, Heriberto Tirado and his wife Arecelis Cruz Morales had their concept of portraying different cultures of Puerto Rico in a single mural. While their wall was changed three times, their concept remained faithful to the original. @heriberto_tirado_art
Local Humacao artist Christian Samuel expressed his love of Humacao. graffiti (letters) and coffee in two pieces around Humacao Grita. @chrisamuelart
