This unique piece depicts a festive winter night in the capital of Ecuador. In his signature style, Cesar Mejia playfully relays the jolly nature of the citizens of Quito with illumined kites flying in every direction. As the brightly dressed townfolk walk toward the town center with kites and hands in the air, Cesar successfully portrays his belief that the most precious and beautiful things in life are free.
