About Abel Aguilar

Public art has a universal language as a way to bring value and a sense of pride to a community. Most of my work pays homage to my Mexican roots; how other cultures intersect with it and how they influence one another. I’ve experienced the positive impact that murals can have in a community. Not only will a mural beautify a wall, but it can eliminate vandalism and graffiti. Murals and public art provide a space for acknowledgment, representation, and identity. I would like to see my art have a positive impact on local culture and society. My intention is that it will help teach and influence in how we look at the world, appreciate different cultures, and identify with a place. Ideally I’d like to work on a mural to represent BIPOC in various places of Tucson and southern Arizona.
