Ararauna was a monumental painting intervention on two Broadway blocks between 39th and 41st Streets in Manhattan. The piece is named after the South American parrots that were mysteriously introduced into the city of Caracas in the 1990’s and managed to thrive in an urban setting. Using a color palette selected from nature to depict soothing silhouettes of tropical flora and fauna, the piece evoked a unique space for meditation and reflection while bringing a message of environmental awareness, peace, and hope to the Garment District’s Urban Garden.
