Where are you from?

Born in Argentina, live in Mississauga, moving to New York City

What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?

No, I come all the time!  Brought my friend who is visiting from New Castle.

Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?

I love the white contrast with teh dark and the faces coming out like friendly ghosts.
