Dominican artist and SUBPAC partner, Maria Batlle has created her first solo art show using SUBPACs in her own painting technique.
In collaboration with international fashion brand Springfield, Maria created this project to support and bring awareness to her innovative social projects in the Dominican Republic that create inclusion for deaf students. An exclusive collection of shirts and caps promoting sign language will also be launched to support her initiatives.
Maria’s portraits showcase a heart in the place of the brain and is painted entirely with the music vibrations produced by a SUBPAC placed underneath the canvas. Maria will be painting live using the SUBPAC in the Springfield gallery 360 in Santo Domingo City, which will ultimately be exhibited at the Louvre Museum in Paris.
“By connecting sound, touch, and passion-driven learning, Maria has found a human-centered way to make the lives of the Deaf community in the Dominican Republic infinitely richer. If every country, every region had a project like this, that actually valued people’s capacities, we could unleash unimaginable potential in the world”
