Displaced Urban Art

In the midst of the art searching this morning, also through Wooster Collective, I came across another artist, who in his own right is an incredible one. You have to see his remarkable portraits to see what I mean. Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada is Cuban-American, and in this video touches on the very subject I've spoken about before, and friends of mine can identify with, of being a foreigner in your homeland.

See him work and hear him speak, Makes me want to grab a vine and write up all the walls in my office.
