June 12, 2010 ::::::: Puerto Rican festival in Harlem and Brooklyn's art and music event wth DOPE SCIENCE and friends!

The day trooping it from the Bronx, ( at that , that train station was packed!!!), to the festival, cause some pause on our route.  Train delay and a lot of sweaty passengers, left me in impression of the "Spirit" of this festival experience. The impression was unity, regardless age; the spirit of the day was  in the air, and so was this *special energy and smiles.

My son, and brother were ready to paint and have fun, and entering the b-boy competition, was also able to see my older brother Tomas, AKA: B BOY ATOMIC, dancing with other dancers on this linoleum mat! We greeted, and then I saw RICH ONE, the main dude that hosted and asked me to paint Live there with other artist. He is mega cool bro!

Time was racing fast as I was calculating how to prep, and get started with the materials I already had. I only bring two canvas for the two shows I had for the day, then my little brother took one canvas and painted on it... I was stuck with one and non for the following show. Love my brother and it didn't bother me.

Rich one , gave me a large canvas for me to introduce other artist on the scene to paint, but non did, Except NELSON SEDA aka: Chief 69. It was our frst time we colaberated and it was so nice to get to know him better. He is a true artist on the many level of its form.

Thanks to Peter Pabon who was able to capture this and many other photos of this day!
