Juan Nambo, Maria Fryer, & Erica Elena Esquivel

Peace, hope, and serenity radiate from the glow of a memorialized Oluwatoyin Ruth “Toyin” Salau by Maria, Erica Elena Esquivel, and Juan Nambo. Her expression translates to a tranquility that is comforting, but also jarring given the circumstances of her death. Maria, Elena, and Nambo have depicted Salau using a saint-like halo that encompasses the head and shoulders of Salau. Red roses adorn the white circular outline of the yellow filler that emphasizes Salau.
