Hi everyone! I decided to take a photo of the Dream Monster by El Paso artist Jam! (Matthew Martinez) this afternoon. Since it’s such a warm day today, I took a walk during lunch. The mural was created this past weekend for the annual Chalk the Block art festival. Jam! owns Dream Chasers Club, an art gallery/clothing line in Downtown El Paso. His company’s motto is “chase dreams, not money.”
Jam! said the dream monster was created with spray and latex paint. Jam! added “It is (the dream monster) a reminder for everyone to chase their dreams. Think of him as someone that is always with you, to push you to that extra mile. He is there to support you.”
The Dream Monster will be on display for about another week and a half outside of the El Paso Museum of Art.
