Artist Joe Castro: United For Puerto Rico
The artist Joe Castro: A few weeks ago, my friend Eneida Cardona reached out and asked if I would help her create an online shop that would sell art/prints to raise money for the people of Puerto Rico who have been affected by the recent hurricanes. Although currently living in the Bronx, Eneida still has family on the island and, as we struggled to watch the continued news coverage, we discussed our shared feeling of helplessness as well as our continued frustration with the current political bickering. So, in a small effort of action, we gathered up a handful of artists and created the website, Artists for Puerto Rico. We offer prints and artwork for sale with 100% of all profits going directly to United for Puetro Rico.

Artist Joe Castro created this collage especially for the site, which I titled “The spirit is stronger than any storm”. The prints are 18 inches by 24 inches and cost £56.84 plus shipping. Please consider purchasing one or just make a donation.
Thank you, for your support!
