Sebas Velasco’s murals in the Dominican Republic




Paying tribute to the República Dominicana people Macorís met during his visit, he created large beautiful pieces titled “Master of Puppets” based on different pictures of Jean, a Hatian puppeteer and “Flotte mais jamais ne sombre” (Fleet but never dark). The title for the second piece was borrowed from a song by French rappers 1995 and it depicts street food vendor placed in a dreamy, surreal setting. Both pieces were inspired by the intense and positive experience that artists had with the locals who received them with opened doors to their humble homes.
