Puerto Rican Art

I created many of these pieces while I was an undergraduate student/M.F.A. at The City College of New York, and in the beginning of my professional career when I met a group of young Puerto Rican lovers of bomba and plena, the afro-caribbean music of Puerto Rico. 

 

While my style and themes have evolved, these pieces remain close to my heart. I feel that in some way, these works of art have contributed to help people communicate their love for Puerto Rican culture and history. This is the testimony of my love for my country and culture.

This growing series is titled Puerto Rican Heart and Soul.
