I created the “Power & Equality” image as a call for gender equality and female empowerment everywhere, but with a direct connection to the Lower East Side through the portrait of actor, activist, and The Lower East Side Girl’s Club board member Rosario Dawson. I share Rosario’s passion for social justice and I think she is a great role model with her spirit of creativity and compassion. The Lower East Side was a source of inspiration and a proving ground for me as a street artist in the 90’s, so I’m very happy to contribute to the neighborhood and pay tribute to a person in Rosario Dawson who embodies humanitarian principles. I’m happy to support this organization working to create our next generation of environmental, entrepreneurial, and ethical leaders. – Shepard
