A BIG Thank you to the Sailor Family for sponsoring this storm drain art!

Artist Bio

Jairo Jiménez Cabezas is a freelance digital animator and illustrator from Costa Rica. He studied at Universidad Veritas in San José and graduated with honors in 2014 after developing a short, abstract film “Perspicientía.” Since moving to Goshen, Jairo’s work has been seen in the Jeremy Stutsman Working For Goshen campaign and at the River Bend Film Festival’s Bumper Contest - receiving an honorable mention for his short film “Indestructible Ideas.” He also creates music videos for bands and, beginning this July, his work will be featured nationwide at Lotus concerts, following the release of their newest album “Eat the Light.”

Artist's Reflection

Jairo’s sidewalk contribution illustrates the abstract expression of the cycle of water. It shows the journey that happens - from the time it disappears from the drain, to the moment it comes back out of the faucet. He enjoys the interpretation of abstract work because it allows the viewer to create their own story or idea of what could, should, or would be.
