Pastel from Argentina and Jufe from Puerto Rico were recently in Miami where they collaborated in this new mural for the RAW Project in the Wynwood area.
Painted at the Jose de Diego Middle School the new mural depicts according to Pastel a grave wreath and represents  “an exercise of gentrification of memory and local identity.”
Are the different immigrant communities in Miami losing their cultural identity through acculturation to the American way of life? whatever is the case, her a few shots by WorldJunkies of the mural.
