As high as our dreams

by Dianita

I have memories from when I was younger, I used to look up to the stars when I felt the world was overwhelming. It was still dark enough to see many stars in the sky and to observe some falling stars when I was lucky (meaning  when I woke up at 3am on a school day to catch the peak of the meteor showers!). Suddenly I felt curious about the universe, and my perspective of life changed in those small moments of ingenuity and excitement. Aren’t moments like those when we dare to dream bigger?

I made this piece with those memories in mind.

These characters of mine are a little tribute to Afro-Mexican communities. Juanita and Benito (the winged jaguar) “live” in a magical version of the “Sierra de los Tuxtlas” (Tuxtlas Mountains) in Veracruz, Mexico – my home state -.

This is the finished drawing that will be the foundation of a future oil painting.
