Over the past twelve years I have exhibited a work of art I named
Fita de Rojas. It is a large 12 x 12 foot installation of 1,296 hand painted portraits. While none of the portraits physically touch they are all connected to a single cancer victim. The connection reaches the entire world. The work is used to create cancer awareness and promote hope through the sharing of cancer stories. You can learn more about "Fita de Rojas" at www.Gustavo8.com. I currently live in Miami,FL, where I have found a new love in writing. I am the author and illustrator of over twenty children’s books, They can be found on Amazon books under my pen name Professor Gus.

The art work that was created to change the viewer. The 1,296 wooden tiles are individually suspended and form a connection to a single cancer victim at the center of the work. Around the center tile
are 143 tiles surrounded by 1,152 people,
together forming a connection that
represent the world.
There are 58 countries, 26 states and
6 continents collected in the work.
Together they represent HOPE.
While the 12 x 12 foot wooden structure where the suspended tiles would live was being built all the 1,296 people were collected. As the images were coming in they were being hand painted by me. After 10 months the concept that came to me in a dream finally complete and up for exhibit in Grand Rapids Mich.
Bellow is a small representation of the style and the detail of the portraits.
The red overall image is called La Grande Vitesse. A sculpture by Alexander Calder that has become the iconic image for Grand Rapids was used to represent where the Cancer victim chose to live. This was important in the overall work, Grand Rapids was where I was raised. The cancer victim was my mother.
The people in this work represent
the number of people that are diagnosed cancer every 30 minutes.
