Puerto Rico is a beautiful place and has people with beautiful minds!
My country! 🇵🇷
In the neighborhood of Alto del Cabro, in Manatí, Puerto Rico, a young architect by the name of Samuel González has taken it upon himself to transform the cracked and mottled walls of his community into a vibrant work of art and symbol of hope. The project, titled Pintalto Manatí, seeks to explore the impact of art on a neglected and overlooked neighborhood that has been compared to a Brazilian favela. Linking 18 houses together, the mural creates the single, cohesive image of an array of colors emanating from a cricket tenderly cradled in the hands of a cancer patient. The macro mural seeks to transcend the realm of art as pure aesthetic pleasure to inspire a message of hope, both for the inhabitants of Manatí and for cancer patients around the world.
