DAY 1 Meeting of Styles Ecuador, 2012

This wall stretches for a good 10+ blocks!

This was a hard wall for me mainly because of the shaky $5 scaffold. There’s lot’s to fix, but Im getting a tall ladder next time! F that…

Collabo partners:)

Lot’s of talent n South America…

Shout out to Enaone for organzing the 1st ever Meeting of Styles in Ecuador event along with his crew, and moms!

Tag tee’s…

Peru is off the chain!

Latex paint, and Aerosol looks really goooooood!

Guayaquil represent.

Folks will be painting wall for days, it’s so huge it will need weeks and even months to complete. Quito has the best walls!!! They stretch for miles and miles…there’s nothing like this back home…crazy.

Dope weekend in the motherland, thank you MEETING OF STYLES!  Shout out to all the artists who pulled through, your work is amazing!!! Peru, Chile, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia and more. I’ve been playing it low key for a while, mainly because I needed the rest but this was gooooood for the soul. Especially since I finally got a chance to meet a lot more women artists this time. We are excited to chat in 2013 about an all female event down the road. I think there’s no plan of return just yet NY! Having a lot fo fun here, there’s lot’s to do still, and my spirt feels freeeeeeeeeee:) Dipping in and out will continue, next stop Miami Art Basel! See ya there…

Before heading back to my little mountain life I had a chance to rock a wall in NY for Rooftop Legends. I was so sad to buff my existing piece because it was one of my favorite works created last year. In life all things must come to an end, and with each scrape an each buff acceptance gets easier. Learning to let go is sooooo liberating! No longer holding on, and discovering what freedom really means. As I became unattached to the world that no longer served my souls purpose I began to discover a new world. My first piece, entitled “RETURN TO THE SUN” held a lot of spiritual meaning for me especially when I returned to my birth land, Ecuador. Since then the universe has been very clear on letting me know it’s time. Time to come full circle and give birth to the meaning of  “IX CHEL” It took me a while to understand why I paint what I paint, and what I am really trying to communicate with each drawing, painting, and mural. The work I do with women, and how through self love and self discovery you can expand your world and reach others genuinely. When I started to put the pieces together  I was in awe of it’s symbolic energy. I have always felt that there was something bigger than me that wanted to communicate, it’s just complicated to explain in the world we live in. Many will not understand, especially if they are not in tune with what is happening within them, and with the world around them. Especially with what is happening in our universe have ya’ll seen the sun!??? There was an explosion this year and our sun has a huge triangle on it! Looks like a gateway. Google that shit, Nasa don’t lie. None the less, crazy or not, I’m all about it. I feel it, and have been feeling there’s more to all of this and the signs have been there for years. I believe there is a powerful energy from our ancient worlds communicating, and we are it’s channels. Just gotta tune in…

Let there be light…

IXCHEL, Goddess of the Moon.

Success! LLP rocked it out this year. It was particularly special this time around because we worked really really hard to make the Holiday Pop-Up Shop kick off the holiday bigger, and better than ever. Our new location in the lower east side made all the difference. Thank you UNIVERSITY SETTLEMENT! We also had the most vendors this year, and the most interactive booths. From nail salon, to make-up on set, tarot card readings, live silkscreening, and the infamous LLP photobooth! It was also one of our biggest turnouts. Our little counter investment proves it! LOL…The LLP team wants to send a super warm and special thank you to everyone who joined us this year, and who made it all happen. Shout out to hommie Yevette Hidalgo who helped us gather items for folks affected by hurrican Sandy. Any little effort counts. From an amazing crop of creative vendors, to fly, and heart felt performers, to the foodie cooks who kept our energy going, our darling photographers, and to our special sponsor this year Vita Coco. We like to thank Allison at University Settlement for all the help in making this happen we look forward to building with you on future events:) To all our guests thank you for all the community support and for shopping handmade and local. It’s a little hard to fit all the wonderful pics we took this year so visit out LLP Facebook Page to see the rest. Allright ya’ll, in case you missed it here’s a re-cap of LLP HOLIDAY 2012!!!

We had some really dope vendors on board this year! Thank you everyone!
