Paradise and the Concrete Jungle was inspired by the constant struggle I face between wanting to live in Miami and New York. The photos used for this painting were taken in various cities such as New York, Miami, New Orleans and LA (for of my favorite cities in the US). I also used the New York Subway Map as a representation of the Concrete Jungle. I used it as the bathing suit because New York City is a city you feel at every moment that you are in it. Every time I am there, I feel like I am wearing the incredible energy the city expels constantly.
