Suarez applied and was selected for the NF Murals project in 2020 with an idea to combine the natural flora and fauna of the Niagara Falls region and portraiture representing youth. The mural highlights the several species of seagulls that are drawn to the Falls from widely varying areas, drawing attention to the visible beauty of the natural world and inspiring appreciation for it.
The mural also includes a portrait of a young, mixed Japanese-Black woman whom Suarez has mentored in the past. One of the lessons that Suarez says he has learned from working with youth is the importance of people of color to see themselves represented in art. This mural serves as a way to honor the importance of the powerful potential that lies within youth, while also celebrating the beauty of diversity — as our region is home to people from a unique blend of cultures and ethnicities.
