Fiesta de Colores: Bahía de Caraquez

Fiesta de Colores: Bahía de Caraquez


Like the Phoenix from a flame... Bahia se levanta

My small piece for Fiesta de Colores in Bahia de Caraquez, Ecuador 2017, bringing messages of Hope and and power to the walls of Manabí to assist in the rebuilding process after the 2016 earthquake.

"On Nov. 25, 2017, International Day Against Violence Against Women, Fiesta de Colores teamed up with local artists and activists, Arte Sobre Escombros and Tejedoras Manabitas, to aid in Bahia's reconstruction efforts and in the fight against violence against women by creating an outdoor gallery of colorful murals that not only beautify and brighten Bahia's streets, but tell the stories of the women that live there, celebrate their contributions to society, and promote gender equality and women's rights."
