Incredible film created by @chopemdownfilms with music by RAM
A few weeks ago we painted this wall (one of two) at what it used to be "Manufacturas Sumar", an historical textile factory in Santiago of Chile and where my grandfather used to be one of the workers. The factory closed around thirteen years ago and now has been beautifully and respectfully restored and turned into @lafabricapatiooutlet . Thanks to @construyecultura for making me part of this project and somehow connect me with the history of my country and my own family and thanks to the team of assistants, we made this together.
Hace un par de semanas pintamos este muro (uno de dos) en lo que solía ser "Manufacturas Sumar", una histórica fábrica textil en Santiago de Chile y donde mi abuelo era uno de los obreros. La fábrica cerró hace unos trece años, ahora ha sido bella y respetuosamente restaurada y convertida en @lafabricapatiooutlet . Gracias a @construyecultura por hacerme parte de este proyecto y de alguna manera conectarme con la historia de mi país y de mi propia familia y gracias al equipo de asistentes, hicimos esto juntos.
I'm painting a 250 ft (75 mt) long brick wall in Chile this week. 📷 @jt_fuentes
Detail of the wall I painted in Haiti this week, surrounded by hundreds of curious smiles asking about everything, paying so much attention to the work and so hungry for knowledge. Children in Haiti are everything like all the children around the world, all my work is dedicated to them and just them so you can understand how excited I was when I got invited to Haiti with @b0rdalo_ii and @felipepantone to paint at the
and somehow collaborate with the incredible work that @artistsforpeace is doing in here. Thanks so much to @artistsforpeace @petertunneyart @goldmanglobalarts @sarah_sperling @shantelle_rodriguez and all the people that made this mission possible. We are leaving in the morning and our hearts are full.
