ABUSA (Chile) X TOOFLY (Nyc) 2014

March 24th, 2014 | Category: Community,Ecuador,Graffiti / Street Art,Green Living

Hellllllllllo spring! The day everyone waits for has arrived. Back in the states winter is finally over, and the rainy season in Ecuador is coming to a close. I prefer rain so much more than snow these days, even though the cloudy rainy season here is a bummer too. You stay indoors most of the time and wait for the sun to peek out every other day. Luckily it’s completely bearable, and we can paint all year round. This month has been especially fun. The Abusa Crew from Chile has arrived in Ecuador!!! My first official guests 🙂 Hosting them has been a pleasure. Anis, and Wend are lovely women, super talented, and vegetarians. I’m energized by all the delicious, healthy meals we have been making together. The girls and I  met back in Peru in 2013. We instantly connected because they were on a whole other frequency + I fell in love love love with their mandala work. It was just a matter of time until we got together again to collaborate and do pieces that mean a lot to us. This past weekend we got invited to a paint jam entitled; ” Pardedes de Escritores Salvajes #2″ organized by our friend Enaone. The wall was ready to paint on March 21st, which marked the first day of spring! An important date in this part of the world known as “Inti Raymi” in quechua language.  It is a ceremony that was celebrated the Incas to honor the resurrection of the sun across in the andean valleys of Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia. When the girls and I were coming up with a design we didn’t even realize that the image unfolded in celebration of  this wonderful tradition. Whatever pulled me back to my birth land continues to inspire me. It feels super good, like super food, to learn that the people of our land celebrate “nature” as the highest power. This makes way much more sense to my heart. Let nature, sunshine, love, dope women, traveling, friendships, and good energy all around RULE!!!
