años de soledad

a collaborative mural made by @Nanookoso @Mataruda and myself for O Positive Festival in Kingston, NY at 721 Broadway • The mural depicts a portrait of @NinaGualinga, the environmental & indigenous rights activist and Hija del Primer Levantamiento - from a photograph taken by @Marcsilver during his documentation of traditional Ayahuasca medicine in the Ecuadorian Amazon. It also depicts images of migration, local Kingston natural landscapes and an Inca Inti gold piece over coal and marble, which were natural resources mined from the area to build cities and capitals. Traditional medicine, modern technology, wellness and health divided by years of solitude.
