Thanks to the organization to make it possible. This is probably one of the most special murals I ever painted. It’s based on a true story about a mistreated toucan found in Costa rica three years ago named “Grecia”. Her story made headlines worldwide after surviving an alleged attack that destroyed most of its upper beak. The toucan received the first 3D print prosthetic beak thanks to a joint effort that included a crowdfunding campaign and the collaboration of companies in Costa Rica and the U.S.
Grecia has become a symbol of their fight to get an Animal Welfare Bill approved by the Legislative Assembly.
I have the chance to visit her after producing my mural and the experience was very unique. Thanks to Rescate Animal Zoo Ave for making it posible and taking care of her.
This is a deep story that captivated me and do not hesitate to do a work based on it for my first mural in central America.
