Esta is a little diluted

The phrase, Esta is a little diluted is what can be deciphered from this wall scribbling of text written in blue crayon. The artists has accompanied the script with a drawing of a nude woman with a fairly wide hip. Her hands are clasped in front of her vagina as an indication of self-protection, and If she is homeless, she is exposed to a hard street-life. Only the artist knows of her troubles.

A large cannabis leaf is drawn next to her, and a figure of a crude face are both illustrated in with a light pencil. There is much more to this photograph which is located in heart of Port of Spain, and like the artist it is the reality in which he lives, the manner in which he tells his story and the proverbs he leaves behind.
