THE HISTORY OF THE MURAL
The incredible thing about this process is that not only is it the first time I have made this type of murals, where the canvas is the four walls and ceiling of a room, but I had the freedom to choose what to express within it.
My inspiration was my brother Frank Anglas, as he is and will be my entire life. My mentor, my great motivation, a person who is always with me in every brushstroke, in every stroke of ink on the skin, in every form of art I make. This mural is a tribute to him, my greatest admiration.
The elements that I chose to compose the mural tell the hard path that he had to go through throughout his life.
The boat represents travel, something he loves to do. And at the same time it symbolizes the direction, your focus on doing what you are passionate about, on learning and listening to yourself. Although the waters may be turbulent at times, its north is well defined.
The man with the hood personifies our destiny and how we create it with the steps we take. A teacher who guides us is this journey that is life, just as he guides me.
THE CARLTON ARMS
It is a hotel in the center of New York with a marked artistic spirit. Murals, works of art and paintings decorate all spaces. Each room is intervened by a different artist. And each artist has the freedom to express their art in the way they want within this space.
In my case, I was able to live the experience of intervening in room 8C and for me it was an unforgettable experience.
