The Moving is inspired by the Latin American diaspora in North America. Their collective effort and desire to work materialize into individual and group goals. Such is the adventure of attempting the infeasible while staying on course, to one’s ambitions.
The artist: DonRimx
David “Don Rimx” Sepulveda was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico and currently resides in Miami, FL. His family lived in public housing; the Nemesio R. Canales development had a very high crime rate in the 90s. At a very young age, Sepulveda chose to be an artist and overcame the many obstacles that were presented by his surroundings. He received his diploma from the Central High School of Visual Arts and went on to continue his education at the Escuela de Artes Plasticas (School of Fine Arts). Upon finishing his studies, he accelerated into muralism, creating large-scale public works throughout the world. They revolve around his personal narrative and its global parallels.
Don Rimx has participated in many notable mural projects and conferences that include Los Muros Hablan NY in Spanish Harlem, Urban Nation Berlin for the U.N. Museum for Urban Contemporary Art, and the Color Libre Puerto Rico mural project. This is his first mural in Newark, New Jersey.
