The MDC Wolfson Campus opened its arms to the people, and the sun shined brightly on them.

"This one is based on the tradition of Bamboula in Congo Square, New Orleans, where every Sunday the slaves were allowed to go congregate and dance. There were hundreds of them," he said.

"My studio is an efficiency in Hallandale Beach," he said. Gustavo specializes in abstract and portrait work and believes that "Fine art should be available and affordable to the common everyday person."
