Luis Munot, 2023

I documented Luis Munot as he painted six pieces in the parking lot of the National Botanical Garden in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. We were there from start to finish, which took about 5 hours. The pieces are for his friend, Oscar Abreu's museum gallery collection. On a regular day, he would never create under such circumstances. 

I met Luis that day through Oscar. It was cool to be in several moments with him as he created these works from blank canvases. We listened to music as he painted, he took a few moments to dance and smile. His environment contributed to his creations to the point where his shirt colors complemented his finished series. 

 At the end of the day, he named the series, "Botanica".
