Reply Marthadilia Alejandra Estrada April 15, 2020 at 1:06 am Peace Maker, Community Healing- I like this art piece because it shows how a person can be influenced by others and the consequences it can bring to them if he/she decides to take the wrong path. They can get good and bad out of it but at the end of the day they decide which path they take even if they are being pressured/influenced by others. Reply Sergio S. April 15, 2020 at 3:14 am I like the art piece of the guy being held hostage by both the police officer and the gang member. I feel like it shows how life is in communities like these. People in our community are never been shown true love by anyone they care about, and the streets are the only place they feel welcomed since they have never had a place that showed they cared about them. Reply chile verde April 22, 2020 at 2:23 am thank you Sergio, that piece represents my life as a violence prevention worker trying to create peace in the streets in the 80s and 90s! Reply ANTHONY FUENTES April 28, 2020 at 7:02 am I like this art piece because it shows how a person can be influenced by others and the consequences it can bring to them if he or she decides to take the wrong direction . What I also like about it is that it shows you not to trust cops or gang members . Reply ANTHONY FUENTES April 28, 2020 at 7:07 am I like this art piece because it shows how a person can be influenced by others and the consequences it can bring to them if he or she decides to take the wrong direction . What else i like about it is that it tell you not to trust a cop or a gang member . Reply Diego Medina December 7, 2021 at 4:48 pm This work of art appeals to me because it depicts how people may be affected by others and the consequences that might result if they choose the wrong route. Individuals can gain benefits and drawbacks from it, but at the end of the day, they choose their own route, even if they are coerced or influenced by others. Reply Jorge December 7, 2021 at 4:50 pm I love the passion of music put into this Art. The details that correlate to the brain dead governments, society creations, this is great, it shows those who truly are alive. Anyway, i really love the colors and style, good job! Reply Martinez, Alexander December 7, 2021 at 4:58 pm I’ve always liked looking at other people’s art, whether it’s something simple like a hallway or as detailed as a forest being covered in the night sky, you can tell that the artist put a lot of effort into it. The mural that I enjoyed the most is the guy with a guitar, the mix of the blue and red (or cool and warm) colors really caught my attention while I was viewing the murals. I also really like the shading that goes with it. Reply robyn angolia December 7, 2021 at 5:08 pm this art does an amazing job of showing on how other people are influenced or used as a goatscape in crimes.a Reply mia December 7, 2021 at 5:09 pm I love the unconditional love painting because it shows a very powerful message behind the painting. Reply Sherlyn C. December 7, 2021 at 5:12 pm I like this piece of art because it shows the reality that happens to good people. And it shows that you cant really trust anyone because even the good people can betray you. Reply mia December 7, 2021 at 5:12 pm All the paintings that are shown are nice and I love them because they all have a meaning behind them and they are very detailed. Reply Arely Alvarado December 7, 2021 at 5:13 pm This was my favorite, I feel that it focuses a lot on the true system, but in Mexico, if crime does not kill you, the authorities will kill you, unfortunately it is the sad reality and this painting reflects all that very well, and the striking colors they give it the touch Reply Allan Hernandez December 7, 2021 at 8:03 pm I really like this mural because I also have a passion of music and I always wanted to learn how to play the electric guitar. Reply Osbaldo Villanueva December 7, 2021 at 8:07 pm I chose this portrait ´´Chicano Blues, Por Un Amor¨ because it caught my eye on how the colors and shade blend together and not only does it show their passion for art but passion for music as well. Reply Eduardo December 13, 2021 at 9:16 pm I like this drawing because it represents music, and i like the color of this drawing is blue is my fovorite color. AND THE DRAWiNG WAS VERY NICE…………. Reply Eve Jimenez December 13, 2021 at 9:30 pm Each art in this page involved me on the things that this express I feel emotion, instability and it caught my attention on the contrast and on how much it can interpret, as Chicana I feel my immigrant people try to get a better life but we are treated as the bad person Reply Nicholas Gonzales December 15, 2021 at 5:46 pm I chose this portrait because it shows passion and hardwork through how well made the colors and shade blend together.
