Lowe's is celebrating their 100'th birthday this year and one of the ways they're doing so is with 100 murals at 100 different stores across the US. The company commissioned YSANEL to paint the mural that now lives outside of the Lowe's on Quaker Lane in Warwick, RI. The mural will be up until December 2021! Go check it out.

YSANEL was invited to create this mural on a dry erase wall for a special conference in the Spring of 2021. Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo sat alongside 5 local female business owners to celebrate their leadership, talk about their needs and introduce the American Jobs Plan and American Families Plan.
As part of their Utility Box Program, The Avenue Concept commissioned local artists to paint murals on these functional but otherwise unsightly part of our streetscape. YSANEL, who is also a poet, reflects on the experience and its impact in this video filmed and edited by Ian Travis Barnard and his team.
YSANEL was commissioned by the City of Providence and the Department of Parks and Recreation to complete a 6 month residency and paint a mural that was permanently installed on the exterior of this building in 2019 until forever. This was YSANEL's first major public art project in the city of Providence, RI.
