7 Contemporary Puerto Rican Muralists You Should Know


Damaly García (HipLatina) writes about seven contemporary Puerto Rican muralists and shows us proof of their artistry with a photo gallery including samples of their work. Some of the muralists are based on the island—Celso Art [see artwork above: a portrait of Puerto Rican novelist Nicholasa Mohr on 111 Street and Lexington Avenue (a collaboration by muralist duo Celso González and Los Angeles-based El Mac, aka Miles MacGregor, with Puerto Rican artists Roberto Biaggi and Cero)]; Alexis Díaz; DonRimX (David Sepúlveda); JUFE (Juan Fernández); and Moriviví, the female art collective—and others in the diaspora—Philadelphia-based Betsy Casañas and Adrián “Viajero” Román (co-founder of the multi-media project Defend Puerto Rico, New York City).
