Ami Ta Kòrsou (I Am Curaçao)
Ami Ta Kòrsou (I Am Curaçao)

This mural is located at Plaza Jojo Correa which is one of the busiest plazas of our city of Willemstad. Thousands of people cross this plaza each day, from locals to tourists from all over the world. I wanted to paint something that represent the beauty and purity of our awesome island. Our Partawela or The white Tailed Hawk is a symbol of guardianship and visionary power, something we all could use a bit of in this day and age.

I also wanted to pair this painting with an uplifting and emotional poem by a local young artist who is no longer with us physically but will be with us forever through the work he left behind, Hemayel Martina. The letters I created are inspired by the Indian cave paintings of our ABC islands and combined with the California Cholo style letters of the 50's.

Avochinan preokupá mi ta invoká - boso pa eskoltá i yuda nos emansipá – sin odio ni vengansa ma ku amor – ya e presiosidat di hoya akí - por resaltá i mundu henter - skucha ora kriaturanan - dje paraiso akí ku - orguyo grita: - Ami ta Kòrsou.

Worried ancestors, I invoke you to escort us - and help lift us into the sky of emancipation - abundantly devoid of hatred, but devoted with love and compassion - so the preciousness of this rock - may shine and the whole world - hear when voices from - this paradise reverberate - with a fervent cry: - I am Curaçao

These are two local birds form the island of Curaçao. The Trupiaal (left) is a frequently seen bird known for its beautiful singing and also has a bad rep for stealing other birds nests and occasionally your bread is you leave it on the kitchen counter. The Partawela or Falki (right) is the largest bird of prey on the island and is a little harder to spot.
