In 2013 Ruben Rojas, a Columbian-American artist, traded in his suit for a paint brush and began transforming blank walls into unique empowering messages that today are uplifting communities and challenging the public to create new dialogues. Rubens’ mission is to ignite creativity and inspire others to see the world through the lens of love. He is best known for his “love” artwork which spreads his message of “Live Through Love.” So you want to spread the love? Here’s a list of murals to check out this weekend!
