We’re excited to introduce you to some new faces (and some familiar, if you’ve been keeping up with this newsletter) created by Cacho Falcon.
Cacho is a storyteller who listens deeply to every person he connects with — on the street, in the studio, and elsewhere — and helps them to express and interpret their vulnerabilities through his paintings. His art gives his subjects’ feelings new depth and form, and allows them to feel fully seen and understood during the time they spend together. As Peoplehood’s first artist-in-residence, he’s created a variety of characters to bring some of our tips, tools, and resources to life. Read on to view our latest collaboration, and let us know which of the below characters is your favorite @Peoplehood_!
Art is thought-provoking. It allows us to externalize our inner feelings, and process any emotions or issues we may be dealing with. Once we get those feelings out creatively, we’re better equipped to talk about them. This is how art helps us connect with one another.
Art reflects more than an artist’s personal experiences; it reflects everything that’s happening in the world. Artists simply translate this into different forms, and rebirth it for everyone to see more clearly. Through creativity, we can help heal ourselves and each other. That’s why I find art to be such a beautiful and therapeutic medium for storytelling.
