DEL RIO – There is more to Adrian Falcon than being known as a local, a national or International abstract artist. Falcon is about the kids, evidenced by his establishing a nonprofit organization Centro de Arte Falcon, which is located in Ixmiquilpan, Mexico.

Conexión Del Rio recently interviewed Falcon whose new artwork project involved kids from Hidalgo. 

“I am currently doing a lot of work in Mexico as I have nearly three years of work invested with kids from Hidalgo,” said Falcon. In that three-year period, Adrian has helped seven kids to become knowledgeable of modern art.

“In August 2017, I was planning a project here in Del Rio with the kids from Hidalgo,” Adrian said. 

That two-year mural project was donated to the Val Verde Regional Medical Center.  

On that particular artwork, Falcon chose seven kids from Hidalgo and seven from Del Rio.

 “The mural was named Four Cultures because we had different groups of kids with four different languages: Otomi, English, Español, and Navajo. During that artistic endeavor, the kids learned to paint and became really good friends. 

Conexión concluded the interview, asking Falcon what was he currently working on?

“Interestingly the mural I am working on, measures 63 feet x12 and is the biggest I have ever done. The mural which was finished a month ago, is located in a street in the middle of Del Rio where there is a lot of traffic. 

People asked Adrian what was the theme to his mural.  “There is abstract philosophy movement and concept modern art.”  “At first, everyone worried because the colors were bright but at the end everything turned out beautiful,” concluded Falcon.
