Para-Sol Expo: Sunrise Parasol

Melissa Mark Viverito invited me to participate in project Para-Sol Expo, started by artists in Puerto Rico and now on view at La Marqueta (115 street and Park Avenue) here in East Harlem. This is my parasol, before leaving the studio. Thank you Melissa for thinking of me!

Murals by Tanya Torres - Schools in NYC

video

These are the murals and mosaics I created between 2006 and 2010 at the East Harlem Bilingual Head Start (116 street and Pleasant Avenue) and P.S. 57 (115 street between Lexington Avenue and 3rd Avenue) This video was made by Elisa Perea. The music is by Anonymous 4, some of the music I listened to while placing thousands of little mosaic pieces to create these images.
