Upcoming Art Festival: 5th Ghetto Biennale Haiti
This is it! After a super formal application process, I'm excited to be listed on the roster of local and international artists who will participate in the 5th Ghetto Biennale Arts Festival in Haiti http://ghettobiennale.org/
Woop woop! Working with the organizer, Leah Gordon, and her team will be such a great opportunity. So what's my contribution to this Haitian Arts Festival?
This November-December in Port-au-Prince, I'll collaborate with my street artist guru friend OliGa to create a massive interactive mermaid mural called "LaSirenn Urbaine" . This magical street painting will elicit stories, myths and beliefs around the vodoun goddess LaSirenn and her consorts.

Public art making sounds scary and intimidating but I'm excited to continue practicing it this fall. Thanks for being here and following along on this creative journey of mine.
