Wall painted in Chorrillos district Lima - Perú. You can see that the mural is approximately 7 meters wide and 3 meters tall, designed under the technique of anamorphosis. The wall was painted to visually span from the left to the right, achieving a stretched visual effect for anyone that stands in front of the wall.
At first, my job was developed from a necessity to create, and I almost always utilize public spaces because I’m able to appeal to more people with my artwork. My murals tell a story because nothing is clear and they’re all based on interpretations. Each person can put their imagination to work in order to find their own, unique meaning.
It all starts when I see the space that I want to paint, and then I take pictures of it and later in the studio I compose images following the format of the wall. This is the part that causes me to “find the idea” after I already have the outline that’s on the computer and I make a montage on photoshop, I print it, and then later I will begin to paint. This wall took me four days to complete (standard time).
I would like to say that this wall was my first time attempting anamorphosis and it’s my favorite wall out of anything I’ve done so far this year. I hope I will be able to make another one soon.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
