Like what you do, success will follow!

"Don't work solely to be glorious, like what you do, take one firmly step at a time and don't look around, then, success will arrive and you will become brilliant!"

Unusual, but with Style

Yesterday, I went to the "Festival Tierra Adentro" at the University of Puerto Rico Utuado Campus as I do all years and I found something very unusual, but at the same time interesting. A local artisan was selling what he called "Limber de Tetita" Let's say is a Puerto Rican flavored ice cone, but the shape of this one is unique.

Graffito: Urban Myth, Just a Note about Street Art

"All art on the street that’s not graffiti" John Feckner

"Street art is art, specifically visual art, developed in public spaces — that is, "in the streets" — though the term usually refers to unsanctioned art, as opposed to government sponsored initiatives. The term can include traditional graffiti artwork, sculpture, stencil grafitti, sticker art, wheatpasting, and street poster art, video projection, art intervention, guerrilla art, and street installation. Typically, the term street art or the more specific post-graffiti is used to distinguish contemporary public-space artwork from territorial graffiti, vandalism, and corporate art.
Artists have challenged art by situating it in non-art contexts. ‘Street’ artists do not aspire to change the definition of an artwork, but rather to question the existing environment with its own language. They attempt to have their work communicate with everyday people about socially relevant themes in ways that are informed by esthetic values without being imprisoned by them." From Wikipedia

New Tendencies in Puerto Rico:

The Metropolitan University (UMET) offered its first Street Art Course under the direction of Artist David Zayas. We welcome this initiative!!!
