Ecuador Earthquake Lithograph (Numbered and Signed)

75 USD50 USD

On Saturday, April 16th, Ecuador experienced a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake, killing over 500 people and leaving thousands of families without a home.

Portoviejo, where Juan Miguel lived through high school and where his grandparents live, was one of the towns most heavily affected by the earthquake. Marin's family survived but sadly, dear friends lost their lives, a family member, or their homes.

One of Marin's way of helping with the reconstruction efforts is through the sale of his drawing of the map of Ecuador, part of his "Under The Influence" series. The earthquake's epicenter, near the coastal town of Muisne, is shown in the top left. The date and magnitude of the earthquake appear at the bottom of the lithograph.

Despite this tragedy, Ecuadorians are coming together like never before.

Hemlock Printers in Vancouver, Canada, generously donated 300 lithographs of Marin's print and all proceeds from this sale will go help the children of Portoviejo.

Each 18" x 24" lithograph, printed on 130lb Coronado stock, is signed, numbered, and shipped (this May) in reinforced tubes. 

Thank you for your generosity.

“Drawing for an audience makes me channel a distinct energy. The work reveals itself as it’s being created, guided by my own emotions but also by the interactions with the people who are witnessing the work. We are all part of the process. The installations are not only cathartic for me but also a vehicle for meaningful connection with community. I am looking for more ways to share these drawings with the world, because, I think in the end, we are here to make things and share them with other humans.”—Juan Miguel Marin
