2008 – Camino de Colores

This mural illustrates the transition of Avondales rural beginnings to its urban foundations. The cycle expands on the idea of a natural habitat untouched by humanity by the use of organic shapes and colors; which then moves on to more synthetic colors and geometric shapes to express the idea of an urban setting. Painted on flat aluminum panels, various aspects of city, past and present, are represented in both abstract and literal forms. The piece is designed to bring beauty to Avondale, not just by its presence but also to serve as a reminder of the beauty the city already holds.
