My passion is graffiti. I began when I was 16 years old, but I draw and paint since when I was a child. I came from Ecuador. My parents did not like that I drew. So when I decided to come here, I felt free because I can do graffiti when I have time. Most the time I drew roses, faces and especially letters. I am always trying to use my imagination. I use my sketch pad are to draw something and after that I put a word that represent my feels and emotions. I want to get a message when they see my art. I draw every weekend. I always working on something new. In New York the people love art. I know the graffiti is considered a crime here and in all countries, but people still practice it. Are people with have great knowledge. For this reason, I want to continue drawing and I hope one day to do something that all people can appreciate.
