Something about people watching that’s so fascinating. we can learn about people just by stopping to observe. watching the world go by, no one aware of our existence or brief window into their world – we transcend into a different state of being.

He would go on to make a total of 14 magnificent murals, installed to this day in the Hispanic Society of America building in Manhattan. They range from 3.5 to 4 meters (12-14’) in height, and total over 69 meters (227’) in length.
