Anón is a collective.



The name Anón derives from the Spanish name for the sugar apple; a delicious fruit sectioned into many triangular compartments, each containing a seed. It is also half of the word anonymous, chosen to emphasize the collective effort required to bring forth any endeavor. In bringing others into the creative process, one is able to serve, to give, thus becoming better at giving. And giving is the only way to receive.
The work of Anón is an ode to convergence, to co-creation. In efforts to dissolve the separation between the artist and the viewer, we put to use our capacity to work together and create landscapes of shapes and colors for others to play in. Anyone who is able to hold a brush is ushered into a space where their inner (and often forgotten) artist is nurtured. It both allows us to continue on the road to an inclusive mode of thinking, and to chip away at any pre-conceived differences.
Being alive and sentient today comes with exposure to the many ongoings of the world, which can pull the mind in any direction. For this reason, we choose to work with subjects that are seeds, that incite contemplation —that serve as lenses to a beauty beyond fear. Our objective is to remind as many as we can, if only for a few minutes at a time, that we are fortunate to live in community, and of the immense amount of love found within it.
May our efforts benefit all beings.
_____________________________
Born in Cuba to an artistic family, I have always felt the need to do something skillful with my hands and imagination. Coming to the States, I joined the Navy as a military medic some years later, where I found myself exercising this creative impulse by using my hands to help others, which also further awakened a strong desire to be of service. The Navy helped me develop a keen appreciation for community, and experience the importance of a nurtured human spirit for a happy, healthy life. After finishing my term, I pursued a BFA in Graphic Design, which gave me the tools to create art with digital assistance. 
However, my artistry really started to take form after a profound experience at a 10-day Vipassana meditation course which, along with a world of indescribable shifts, compelled me to narrate my understanding of community and interconnectedness through triangles as an art form.
In murals and in life, I like to empower others to pick up a paintbrush and work together. Through the experiential act of co-creation, it becomes easy to experience the diversity in each triangle’s shape, color, size, and ultimately appreciate how each one, regardless of appearance, is imperative to the integrity of the whole. My objective is to remind others, if only for a few minutes at a time, that we are fortunate to live in community, and of the immense amount of love found within it. I’m currently living in (and loving) West Palm Beach pursuing a life of art-making with my beautiful wife and artist Samantha.
