Intervening public space during a particular time such as 2020, seemed like a good fit to talk about emotional health. This piece invites us to find balance in between the turmoil of emotions, exploring inside our minds to recognize what is happening.


Ignoring our uncomfortable feelings won’t make them disappear. I put them in this small ball of darkness and embraced it. This loving gesture is guided by the other side of the spectrum, a cloud of light floating above the head, and two rainbows acting as ears, listening carefully to what emotions tell us.

Framing the scene, a big rainbow in the front, and a dark shape in the back symbolize this same positive/negative duality, but on circumstances out of reach. Uncertainty will always keep on flowing. And yet, the expression on the face of the main character tells us it’s ok.


This “Micro Journal of Emotions” illustrates different emotional states and physical sensations, from positive and negative extremes, decreasing intensity until both forces are balanced. This ideal state of peace, is the scene represented in the mural.

But before and after getting a moment of peace, we usually go through wild emotional shifts. A good way to start dealing with this, is to check in how you’re doing. If you feel “good or bad” keep digging, learn specific concepts. On each page of this zine there are blank spaces to write. I gave this to people I met in the street, to use as inspiration and reminder of this exercise. But you can do it anytime anywhere! Next time you’re experiencing something, ask yourself what is it? Expand your emotional vocabulary. Feed your brain with information to help it respond in a more wise way.


Getting people to investigate their feelings was far-reaching. After finding the specific words, I asked everyone to share them back. Some people told me in person, some wrote on an IG post I made specifically for this, and some send me direct messages. Each night after painting, I spend a good time reading all the messages and transcribing the words into this Collaborative LIST of EMOTIONS 📝

I invite you to read them, as each word will trigger your brain to experience that emotion for a millisecond. The more rare ones, or words from other languages (that have no english translation) are accompanied by definitions.

To celebrate and materialize this collective experience, I added all those words to the mural, making it not just mine, but ours.  I sorted them alphabetically, so the “positive” and “negative” feelings are all mixed, providing a rich bird’s-eye view of our current situation as a community. 

If you didn’t get the chance to participate with your own word, take a look anyway. You might find a similar one, and then you’ll know there are more people feeling like you do now. If you are not sure what is it that you’re experiencing, you can also take a look at the list, and see if something rings a bell. However you choose to explore your feelings, it’s going to be worthwhile.

Project: SmartEnCity
Location: Tähe 2, Tartu, Estonia
Date: Aug 2019

In SmartEnCity project, Khrushchevs (soviet apartments from the 1960s) were transformed into “Smartovs“: renovated buildings, equipped with solar panels and smart electronics. In addition to achieving greater energy and environmental sustainability, it was planned to give all residential buildings a new appearance.

I asked for neighbours’ testimonies about what that building represented for them:
“When I reach home, I feel happy and calm and being loved. My home is like a small oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of the down town car noise. In my home I have people who I love and miss. When I reach home I’m happy to see them.”
I based my design on these feelings.


While painting alone, I play music and look around the neighbourhood, spotting the habitués -those who really enjoy public space-. Sometimes we share a talk, sometimes just a distant look. I decided to paint some of them in the wall:

🐱 Catlady: My absolute favourite, this russian neighbour was always out there enjoying fresh air with that cat that behaved like a dog. She didn’t look like walking the cat, but just wandering around, standing at the sun. One day I saw a book left alone near the building entrance, it was in a different place the next day, and I was intrigued until one day I saw her sitting in the stairs reading it. Of course. A couple of people who walked by the mural, mentioned lovable encounters with this “the cat lady” (that’s how I learned she only spoke russian) so it looks like she’s quite a character in the block. I loved the idea of painting her, even in this small form.

🦜 Parrots: One day a neighbour told me he had a mural of a rhino in his apartment. Other day, he was recycling some curious materials, he noticed I noticed, so he shrugged and told me he had two parrots “-and a rhino” I added. He smiled and invited me dinner. That’s how Alex and I became friends. Despite the limitations of language, we shared some really fun moments. He asked me if I danced, to what I answered YES -being latin I kinda trusted my moves- . He turned out to dance latin rythms at a dance studio around the neighbourhood, so that’s how I ended up super confused trying to keep up with the twist and turns of Eastern-European-dancehall-moves. Gotta love life random paths.

🍒 Plums: A lovely neighbour approached one day and told me to get some plums from her bag. “Take more! I have too many” She picked them from her garden, so I had fresh delicious local plums to enjoy during the week.

🐶 Wiener Dog: The shortest legs in town, this little fellow and his human friend walked by every day. I fell in love with his walking style, and how he knew exactly where the stroll was over, and he was not up to walking an extra inch.

🤖 Machines: My lift’s name was “Dino” 🖤. The compressor for the paintgun was not only noisy but made such a scandal that no screws could hold on to it. I loved the cute little pressure display though. Since they were renovating the area, I was surrounded by machines -gotta love those big toys-. I was so tempted to ask the guy let me drive that unbelievable truck. Ever since I started working with heavy machines I kinda understand that construction workers vibe, feels sooo powerful to drive a 4 ton monster.
FUN FACT: “Tagasta puhtana” sounds like an italian curse (I internally cursed when turning that noise on), but actually means “Return clean” in Estonian.

The Mitten

 Project: ArtScape Saga
 Location: Molinsgatan 11, Lilla Edet, Sweden
 Date: Jun 2019

Artscape Saga is a project that illustrates classic scandinavian folktales, through StreetArt. I was assigned “The mitten”, an Ukrainian story about a boy who lost his mitten in the forest:

+ Read Original Tale

⋆ ⥼✦⥽ ✤ ⥼✦⥽ ⋆

“Nicki ran outside to climb a leafless tree. He climbed and climbed and was almost at the top, when one of his mittens slipped to the ground. “I’ll sit here for a bit and pick the mitten on my way home,” thought the boy.
Meanwhile, a mole tunneling through the snow discovered the mitten. “It’s so warm and fuzzy. I’ll rest here for a bit.”
A snowshoe rabbit hopped his way toward the tree, when he noticed the mitten. He wiggled in. The mole was about to say that there was no more room, but seeing rabbit’s big kickers he simply moved over.
Next a hedgehog sniffing for food came across the mitten. Cold and tired, he decided to warm his body in the mitten. The mole and rabbit seeing the prickles, made the room without arguing.
As soon as the hedgehog was inside the mitten, a big owl attracted by the commotion on the ground lowered his flight. And of course, he wanted to go inside too. As the animals were about to protest, they saw the owl’s talons and let him in.
Up to now a badger, sleeping at the bottom of tree’s opening, woken up by the fuss outside approached the animals. As the animals thought that there was absolutely no more room, they saw the badger’s diggers and showed him the thumb.
It started snowing, when a fox ran looking for a warm place. Seeing warm mitten, it pushed its way in. Shining with its white teeth, the fox had no problem getting in.
A warm and fuzzy bear stumped its way toward the mitten. “I won’t be left out,” with those words he pushed his large body into the mitten. The mitten stretched and bulged, but nobody would argue with such large animals as bear.
A tiny meadow mouse spotted a large warm mitten. No bigger than an acorn, she made herself comfortable on top of the bear’s nose.
The mouse wiggled, tickling the bear with its whiskers.
The bear gave such a forceful sneeze that all animals flew out in all directions.
At the same time, the boy decided it was time to go back home. As he climbed down, the mitten flew up straight into his hand. Happy boy walked to the hut not making much out of a flying mitten a bit bigger than the original size.”

⋆ ⥼✦⥽ ✤ ⥼✦⥽ ⋆

My interpretation was that the boy found the mitten and wondered: “what happened while I was gone?” So he started making up this story, adding more and more animals, as the wool thread drew what he was thinking. I was inspired by some elements from “kurbits” (Swedish embroidery ornaments).


🦔 Hedgehog: On day 1, after I finished sketching all the animals, I got off the lift to get some paint, turned around and -POW! a huge wild hedgehog came out of nowhere and started sniffing my paint. I was actually looking for a color to start painting the hedgehog, so I absolutely felt like I invoked him. He came by the wall everyday, and of course, I filmed it everytime .

🚶 Neighbours: Among the people who walked by everyday, there was Kiki. It was that kind of situations where you exchange smiles, and feel connected without words. One day I recognized one of her dogs’ names: Baloo. That gave me a hint about a common interest (Baloo is the bear from The Jungle Book, one of my fav characters). Another day when we had the chance to speak, I learned the other dog’s name: Babsan. She told me it’s the performing name of LarsÅke Wilhelmsson, a swedish drag artist. I got more and more curious about her, and life in that small village surrounded by forests and mountains.

💀 The silent spectator: There was a huge truck in front of the wall, I always looked at it because I love machines. But it wasn’t until Kiki told me to look inside, that I noticed the skeleton in the copilot’s seat! “Helge” had been there staring all the time without me knowing…

💥 War Alarm: The alarm system started on World War 2 and it is still in use in Goteborg, for emergency warning in case of approaching danger. They test it the first monday of the month, so I got to hear it.

🔥 Barbecue: The neighbours association organized a barbecue to catch up with the wall, enjoy the sun and grab a bite 🙂

Daily journey: It was a 40′ drive from the hotel to the wall, plenty of time to wake up in the morning as well as chill out after work. It was specially soothing when Majlie drove because her music matched the landscape perfectly. Also her car was stashed with chocolate. Check out the Moose sign in the end! -didn’t see any but it was lovely to think they were around-

Project: Urban Samtidskunst
Location: Halmstad Skole, Rygge, Norway
Date: May 2019

This school wall invites kids (and adults) to grow with knowledge and sensitivity. The characters represent night and day colors, both of them carrying elements from eachother. They are creating a new space by joining two opposite forces just above the door, where the real sparkles will run through.


🌨️ Urban Astronaut: The weather was cold, windy and rainy. But this time I was prepared: got the raincoat and shoe cover from my previous trip to China, my hot drink from Argentina, and the snowsuit Viktor’s mama gave me last time I was in Norway (that’s another story). I could barely move, felt like a chihuahua with 5 sweaters on…but I was warm, dry, and victorious on the inside -in your face, weather!- .

🌈 Curiosity #1: In many cold places the houses are light and pastel. It’s the kind of detail you don’t notice until you’re there. I think it’s nice to have a happy spot around, so I usually pick basic bright colors. For some, this comes as a surprise. Here, my neighbour Heidi told me she painted a playground like a rainbow and it felt like a small revolution. We talked about colors and moods.

Everything is white, even the dog

The first day at the paint store, the staff refused to prepare my colors. As crazy as that sounds, they friendly suggested alternatives, which were of course, desaturated. I don’t know if the misunderstanding was based on the english language or the cultural differences, because these were sections in the catalogue:
“Nordic” = desaturated colors,
“Favorite” = shades of grey,
“Accented” = basic bright colors.
How can grey be a favorite, and why they refused to prepare the accented colors in the first place, is a mystery. They argued it had little coverage, so as a solution we used very specific priming for each color. It took us about an hour to reach this agreement, over delicious coffee & truffles to soften the discussion.

👷 Curiosity #2: After I finished my work, a local painting company was sent to do reparations at the school. If you see the original surface I painted on, you can see there was only one smooth wall.

This aged wall with windows, was the only left out of the mural, it looked like it needed reparations:

Surprisingly when the reparations came, they chose the only smooth wall to repaint. In this photo you can see the aged wall is still not repaired.

This happened shortly after I finished painting. It got to the news and I started getting messages about it, before I even shared the original mural. Reading the newspaper, I found this student’s testimony that made me smile:
“I’d like to hug the picture and try to squeeze it. I’m just getting close, but not too much. Because I don’t want to ruin it. It would be silly if the paint goes away”

It was on the TV, newspapers, and my inbox XD

On the bright side, it was not the main characters but the graphic part which was easier to fix. The company responsible covered the restoration, but I was already in Canada. So I trusted the task to Viktor -the curator- who is also a painter and helped me during the process. He’s great!

This is how it looks now, good as new. My signature is missing but this is the story behind it.

Siesta en el Jardin

Project: San Martín Pinta Bien
Location: Av. 25 de Mayo 1100, San Martín, BsAs, Argentina
Date: March 2019

A pause somewhere between the storm that was, and the sprout that will be.


This was a particular moment in my life. I’ve just moved out of Madrid after living there for 5 years, making it my second home. I was in my homeland Argentina, but not for long and the little time I had was interrupted by long paint-trips to China and Europe. My husband and I were looking for our next destination. I remember discussing if we wanted it to be to Australia or Canada… this talk taking place over the phone, me speaking from China, my husband from Argentina. It hit me that my wildest dream had come true, BUT that meant I ended up with bits of home and heart scattered around the world, and a strong confusion about who I was.

This wall was my wish to leave something full of love and peace, in the place I was born: San Martín. It was complicated for lots of reasons, but the best part was to have my family and friends there with me. I was burnt out but happy.

Nurture Light

Project: Urban Samtidskunst
Location: Haugenstua Skole, Oslo, Norway
Date: October, 2018

Murals at school

Light is connected to knowledge and good spirit. This double side murals talk about an inside and outside quest for it. There’s a personal, internal process on the front, where the character finds his/her unique light and shares it outside.
On the back, there’s a collective action where the characters are moving into a warm playful spot, where this nice energy is concentrating.
Both are opposites but part of the same cycle: being active and curious, give what what we have, learn what we find.


Right around the corner of this school there’s a gigant table lamp installed in the open air. As a latinamerican, living in Madrid, I used to take light and weather for granted. I did complain when days became shorter in winter, but up until this trip, I didn’t know what cold and darkness can do to your spirit (years later I moved to Canada, haha). During this project I stayed at a neighbor’s house who asked me to never turn the lights of off. She said “it may sound weird, but I need the light”. After a while I started to understand, that endless cold darkness really gets to you. And to see that lamp every day on my way home really felt like a hug to my soul. I used to stop for a while to contemplate it, and I’m happy I integrated it into the mural.


I often find myself wondering why I’m doing this/how did things got to this point. This time it all started “kinda difficult” and ended up “craziest wall I’ve ever painted”. Norway + October= I was expecting cold weather but not as extreme as it got. I had very little light so I made very slow progress. Victor, the organizer, calmed me down saying that we could extend the trip… but each day got darker and colder, and physical/emotional exhaustion increased.

On the last days two good things happened: Morten, a friend I met in another festival in the Arctic, happened to be a local. He heard I was painting there so he came by (along with a Northern jacket, Wine and Chocolate). We had an amazing talk, and all the time I was thinking that worldwide-streetart-friendships are a surreal thing.

The second thing was that Victor’s mom heard about the whole weather situation and she came by with a snowsuit for me to use. “But I’m gonna get paint on it” I said. “No worries”. I thanked them with all my heart, and returned it after I finished. The next year I went back to Norway for another project , and I got the suit back, but this time I took it with me. Victor said “there’s no such thing as bad weather, there’s only bad clothes”. What a lesson! I’ll be forever grateful to him and his mum.

Inner Sparkle

Project: Waterford Walls
Location: 13 St. Ignatius St, Waterford, Ireland
Date: August 2018

Having an inner sparkle jumping around involves having a layer of shadow guarding it. Without defining it as good or bad, the person in the middle is just keeping balance, sometimes lighter, sometimes darker. We’re moving.


When I first arrived to the wall I found that it was being demolished. I was instructed to paint the wall in front of it. The home owners didn’t get the memo about this, so it was all a rough start (although I ended up having great relationships with all the neighbors around that wall).
The (old & new) wall had a sign that I was told could be moved to the side to be preserved (that’s why I painted sign posts in the original design). But the sign was made of concrete and there was no chance to move it, and no time to change the design. I sadly had to paint it over.

Last but not least, I got stuck in the lift while everyone was at the pub. Everyone but my friend Brian (fellow artist painting in the festival) who happened to visit me at the right moment. He called technical service and while talking to them on the phone, he manually tried to operate the lever for HOURS to get me down. This didn’t work, but he got an idea. “I’ll be back” he said. “Please do”. He remembered another artist’s lift was parked around the corner, so he thought of using it to rescue me that night, (cause technical service was in another town so they would come the next day). He thought of it but didn’t tell me (or maybe he did but I didn’t understand it from up there), so when he left I had no idea what was coming up next: It was hilarious to see him approaching like a knight in shining armor, but slowly driving a lift instead of a horse.
