The city of angels is also known as the city of wall art: Crowds normally form to take photos by them, but with the sheltering-in-place order over LA, this is no longer the case. LA muralist Ruben Rojas won’t let that stop him from spreading hope through his craft.

On this week’s episode of Keeping it Krischic’s pandemic special, Quarantelling Stories (more explanation about it in this post), Rojas joins me to chat about his quarantine wall mural series: “You can’t Quarantine Love” and “Love is Standing Six Feet Apart.” These wall works around Los Angeles have gone the social distance and become social media hits.

If you’ve seen doodled hearts patterned on the sides of LA buildings, you’re probably familiar and have taken pictures of Ruben Rojas’ work. He is illustrious for his “Live Through Love” series around Los Angeles. In addition to collaborations with Westfield Mall and LuluLemon under his belt, Rojas is a prolific poet, speaker and the co-founder of Beautify Earth.

Fun fact, this tulle number is actually a dress that I’ve been wearing as a skirt since high school. I paired it with a drop-waist blazer with invisible buttons to make it look like a blazer dress. My mother gave me this silver pin as a final touch. I fancy myself a silver tongue of sorts, a wordsmith, and this adornment was a representation of that!
