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.
