The Love Story behind The Butterfly Collection
Producer’s Extended Cut
Meet Marisabel Bazan
Artist, Marisabel Bazan, transforms the streets Panama with her butterfly murals.
“Art is anything you can make beautiful…is letting your silence speak.”
Initially, Marisabel expresses loss through paint. Due to losing a close friend to suicide, she began painting more prolifically. As a result, she beautifies ordinary places with her butterflies. So, through her butterflies, Marisabel sees pain transformatively.
“Butterflies represent a transformation of human soul…Every time I’m doing a butterfly I’m actually transforming somebody’s soul…butterflies are free. They’re delicate.”
