How would you describe your art style?
Urban Impressionism

How long did it take to complete this piece? What is your art process?
3-4 hours to complete. Its based on layers, starting with the cool color first, then working in mid tones and layering in highlights.
Work through that process up and down about 3 times.

Where else can we see your art?
Art shows around Orlando. Installation at Aloft in Downtown Orlando.
City Arts Factory.
Own a store called Culture Xchange in the Fashion Square Mall.

Where are you from?
Grew up in Honduras, moved to Miami as a kid for about 10 years. Moved to Orlando to be with family.

What does it mean to you to be a part of the growing art culture in Orlando?
I love being apart of the pioneering phase in Orlando. We get to instill the idea of positive expression in the local community.

How did you get into art?
I got into it for expression purposes. When I moved here from Honduras I couldn't speak much English so I used art to express and communicate. I remember sitting in the back of my classes and doodling in my books when I was a kid.

UPDATE: March 19, 2020 - In accordance with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance to postpone events involving more than 50 people over the next eight weeks, Major League Soccer has extended the postponement of its matches during this period of time. MLS remains focused on playing the entire 2020 season and is evaluating all options, including pushing back the end of the season and playing MLS Cup in December, as the league did prior to the 2019 season. The league is also identifying other available dates. Throughout this process, MLS will continue to prioritize the safety of our fans, players, employees and partners and to coordinate with federal and local public health authorities as well as other sporting organizations..
