US ART – Colombian-born pop artist conveys dreams-over-money message

Spain, UK

Colombian-born Mayra Mateus has forged her own path in the Miami pop art scene through her piggy-bank character, which she has used to convey the importance of «saving dreams» and to provide hope to the many immigrants struggling with depression.

«I decided to create a ‘piggy bank’ … to represent my philosophy that dreams are more valuable than money. My idea is to have art with a purpose, art that can send a message,» the native of Cali, Colombia, told Efe.
