Danielle De Jesus
Artists Make New York
"I need to be around my community because it's my muse, it's the reason I do what I do. I had to come back home." — Danielle De Jesus
Meet us on Graham Ave with Danielle De Jesus, an artist featured in "Life Between Buildings." Born and raised in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Danielle has deep ties to the Puerto Rican community that has shaped the neighborhood for generations. Finding inspiration in everything from community gardens to local grocery stores to the colors of the Puerto Rican flag, Danielle's work charts the intersections of green space, gentrification, and Nuyorican community.
