I just wanted to take the time to Thank You all for coming out to our home to participate in the workshop. What you felt and what you experienced was real. It was a change in your frequency and it felt good. Lets continue our good work and spread more love in our home and allow it to grow from your home to your community - from your community to a different city - and so forth. Any questions or comments - Please feel free to share here or contact me via my email. email@example.com Thank You.
Our San Diego, CA. Collaborative Journaling Workshop and Lunch was Real and Truthful. Some of us cried in order to release certain things that do not serve us anymore others allowed themselves to be messengers of goodness. Wisdom, Compassion, Forgiveness, Unity and Love surrounded us all. Thank You all that came through. We will continue to share our love and light. Next stop is Albuquerque, New Mexico - Sunday July, 24th 2016. Thank You @irenecastruita and @buenqamino for all your hard work to make this workshop happen. Thank You Carlos Solorio for capturing such a special event with your camera lens.
Short impromptu video my partner Irene Castruita and I made to share more information regarding our upcoming cross country road trip to the East Coast. Where we will be stopping in different cities along the way to produce our "Collaborative Journaling Workshops and Lunch"

The time has come to share with the world this book that Isaias Crow has been writing for the past 4 years. “The Crow's Aura - The Path to Forgiveness” it is a book that invites you to heal and reflect. In this book, Isaias Crow shares about his life and the lessons of forgiveness, acceptance and tapping into other spiritual realms. We want to share this book with the world and use it as a tool for presentations, workshops and dialogues. We need your help by donating to our campaign, by spreading the word and by believing in this process with us. We will be embarking on a cross-country road trip as a "Traveling Tribe of Light" in mid-July and will share this book and the lessons everywhere we go via our Collaborative Journaling Workshops (Facilitated by Crow) and Lunch (Provided by Irene's Kitchen). We will start our journey in San Diego with a Collaborative Journaling Workshop on July 18th at our home then proceed onwards with our final destination being in Trenton, New Jersey.
This journey is coming into fruition out of necessity. The need to assist others in activating their inner power and their personal Spirit Guide.
This book focuses on healing by forgiving and accepting. To transform the negative into positive and really learning to love and accept yourself. It's a workbook for the soul that affects your entire being. With these gofundme donations , the aim is to travel cross-country and advocate the need for healing, reflection, introspection and using creativity as a transformational tool accompanied by rejuvinating meals. We aim to nurture those we encounter with Power to Your Spirit and Energizing Foods.
We plan on stopping by in different cities and visiting community centers, schools and peoples homes to provide our Collaborative Journaling Workshops and nurturing foods. We see this as the first phase, to get the word out and putting these exercises into practice while Crow works on polishing and refining the pages to get the first out of 3 books ready for print.
Hi :) I'm passing by via this post to say Hello :) And to share with you some of the latest work my family and I have been doing. There's actually a lot to catch up on but I'll give you the gist. Yes? Cool.
1. Irene aka Bunnee (as I like to call her) has been going full force with Irene's Kitchen. Providing good, healthy and rejuvenating foods and juices for her clients.
2. I myself have been doing Introspection Workshops using my "Collaborative Journals" in both the states and outside the states which for an unknown reason - I have not promoted on social media. These classes stem from doing my graffiti art classes throughout the years.
3. In light of all of what is going on around the world, Bunnee and I decided to join forces and create our Collaborative Journal Workshop and Lunch. I facilitate the workshop and Irene provides the power food and drinks.
4. There's a lot each of us can do but sometimes for "x" reasons we feel paralyzed or helpless. Seeing that the workshops have been inspiring and awakening for people, Bunnee and I decided to make a cross country road trip - to offer that good energy and share ideas and techniques on how to tap into your own personal power and your own Guardian Angel or Spirit Guide.
5. Similar to the Collaborative Journals which contains questions to introspect and exercises for the reader to grow mentally and spiritually, we are releasing our book titled "The Crow's Aura - The Path to Forgiveness" The book is my personal biography mixed with magical moments I've experienced - and its a great read (if I may say so myself) But it is also meant to be a work book - an interactive, healing manual. To inspire the reader to share his or her own story and grow via the process.
6. We have created a GoFundMe campaign - Please check it out to learn more of our first steps on this journey we are embarking on as a family as a Tribe of Light. Help us spread the word - Contribute what you can - We will continue sharing our Life's Work via our social media accounts and emails.
7. Sending you all love, gratitude and good vibes.
I worked with 15 participants ranging from 18 - 21 years old. Observing and humbling our egos so we could generate deep, grounded and rooted designs about the culture and the people of Honduras. After 4 days of intense introspection, dialogues, healing, sharing and painting the first layers of the 2 large canvases each measuring 5'x9' - the workshops came to a close. Receiving the participants trust and blessings - I interlaced myself into their work with the aim to add to it. The outcome was 2 large scale paintings rich with history, healing vibrations, blessings and much much more.
The US embassador Mr. Nealon and Mrs. Nealon loved their 2 new paintings. Mission accomplished :)
Thank You Camille - Art in Embassies - Kat and Carmen - US Embassy Tegucigalpa for the invitation and trust for me to do my work.
Thank You Mc Ko-co for all your hard work - I appreciate you brother - and Much love and good vibes to Gavarrete Cristian and Angelina Cordon for leading the groups to create the 2 amazing paintings. Much love to all of you that participated - it was an honor to meet and work with all of you.
I am grateful
I had been telling Bunnee that I needed to slow down on my traveling and focus on my studio painting. I felt there were three things that needed my immediate attention, 1. My two younger daughters where growing up without their father. 2. I was leaving Bunnee alone with all the responsibilities at home and our connection as lovers was wavering. 3. I had something stuck within my spirit that needed to come out – something needed to be expressed onto canvas with paint. What it was I had no clue but it had been pulling at me for some time now.
As I closed the door behind me from my art studio, I also closed the door spiritually from traveling. Having neither a plan nor idea what I was going to create, I began to measure and cut pieces of canvas from the roll I had previously bought. Soon, the widest wall in the studio was completely covered with random cut sizes of canvas.
“I see that my mural painting conditioning is not going to be that easy to shake off,” I thought as I stepped back and looked at the wall.
I grabbed an empty garden pump sprayer and filled it with diluted brown paint. Gave it several pumps till I felt the bottle filled with air and tension. The first thing that came to me was raw expression. It felt as if I was blessing the canvases. Each stroke left a splatter of dripping paint behind. Slowly my focus went from the general to the specific and I began to narrow the sprayer’s fan. There was now circles’ being painted on each canvas. Each piece was its own portal and they all welcomed me to submerge myself within it.
Each day the portals were open, I would go inside and explore. There was both light and darkness available to me. What I learned being in those portals was that they are both powerful and beautiful. Each one contains the lessons and information you need at that moment. The only requirement is that you must be clear minded so you can gather and translate the given message.
“It is a spiritual equinox,” Bunnee said, while she visited me in the studio with our two daughters. “It is an equal amount of light and darkness at this moment in time,” she continued. I smiled at her from ear to ear mesmerized by her words.
I showed the pieces to a few of my close friends in my home then a few days later I exhibited them in Los Angeles. People would ask me, “What are these pieces about?”
I would simply answer that the pieces where about accepting both your light and dark. Which is true, they are about that but it is not till I brought them back home that by chance, I placed them all on the floor. Like a puzzle the story began to unfold further and deeper. The information and the story were clear as day and night.
“Bunnee, do you see it?” I asked her with excitement in my voice. I then continued, “Its like you shared with me previously while we both worked in the garden, Everything Starts as a Flower!”
I then continued to describe the story from the bottom to the top as the paintings expressed it, “From the earth, to the moon and the reflecting sun to woman and child to then transcending to the celestial,” I paused.
“Everything starts AND ends as a flower.” I said with my eyes wide open with self discovery.
NOTE: This collection is currently showing at La Bodega Gallery in Barrio Logan San Diego, CA till June 30th, 2015.
"Everything Starts as a Flower"
Thanks to the cultural connection between Mexico and the United States, Tijuana found itself immersed in break dancing and graffiti during the mid- 1980’s. From that surfaced crews or collectives who were made up of kids who used to claim corners whether it was by selling drugs and/or being affiliated with gang activity. Some of these kids saw something bigger and broader that which was self-expression, brotherhood and a rush of adrenaline only found in graffiti. Because of its addictive properties, some of these kids would bomb or paint throughout the whole city, or as we call it “going all city.”
Established in 1989, the HEM (Hecho En Mexico) crew from Tijuana tagged for identity, bombed for respect and now paints to promote and advocate unity. HEM has evolved into a global graffiti collective with artists from all over Mexico, Switzerland, Spain, Colombia and the United States. Each artist brings their own unique style and personal identity to the crew.
“HEM – El Don del Aguila/The Eagle’s Gift” art exhibition will showcase paintings and photographs from the crew’s active members. Outside of the gallery facing the I-5 freeway, a large-scale mural has been painted by some of the members. We hope you enjoy the exhibition.
Usually when I am creating a new “collection” of paintings, I begin by cutting out the desired size of canvases from the canvas roll. Placing them throughout my art studio in the walls or spaces that feel right.
While working on multiple pieces of different sizes simultaneously, I tend to approach them as one large painting or a sort of portable mural. Dissected in various areas and each canvas varying in composition, yet maintaining the color scheme and rhythm of the entire “collection”.
Because of my background as a muralist, the larger the canvas the better for me, it is effortless to paint it since my entire body is conditioned to move and dance with the large painting process. The smaller the canvas, my being in stillness increases 95%. Because all I am using at that time is my wrist and a little bit of my arm, that’s it.
With my latest collection titled “Spiritual Equinox” I noticed that I would keep leaving the smaller pieces (14”X14”) behind. I would add some broad layers of paint to them then move on to the larger pieces, where I would invest a lot of time and energy onto them.
One smaller piece in particular felt very distant to the rest. So, one day, I decided to focus on it and not stop painting on it till I reached a moment of satisfaction. Hours later I surrendered and began to literally draw on the painting. It was now really offbeat from the rest of the paintings but I allowed myself to create freely. Then I heard a voice, it was my father’s voice, he said, “Feel the line, don’t just draw it mechanically. Feel it, let the line tremble and waver – at least you can feel it being created.”
I would go as far as to say that my father’s spirit began to guide me. At-least that’s how I felt at first but then the entire experience deepened. It was like I was outside of my body seeing my father creating/painting the piece. As he spoke out loud words of encouragement and guidance I observed attentively.
Then, with a blink of an eye, I was back to being myself and rinsing out the brushes with turpenoid medium as I stared at the painting. I grabbed it and took it home with me. I figured I would do that to further observe it as I dosed off to sleep. Then upon waking up, I would stare at it again and decide my next step in the painting process. That was my initial thought but once I brought it home, my 4-year-old daughter, Galaxy saw the piece and ran straight to me thanking me for her gift. She embraced me while taking the painting from my hands. I figured she would get over it and forget about the painting.
The next day, as I observed the painting in the living room, Galaxy picked it up and asked me to follow her into her room. She then indicated exactly where she wanted the piece to hang, right above her princess sofa-chair. Her joy and excitement made it hard for me to explain that the piece was not complete and that my intention was to sell it at a fundraiser for Greely Gardens not gift it to her. At that moment when I was about to explain this to her, she thanked me again and embraced me with a surplus of gratitude. Galaxy had seen all of my other paintings from the “Spiritual Equinox” collection but this was the only piece that she connected with at such a deep level. I looked at Irene and with a big smile on my face I said, “I just bought our daughter her first art piece.”
Open Space and Crewest Present: TIME TRAVELER - A collection of paintings by Isaias Crow.
457 N. Fairfax Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90036
RSVP at: firstname.lastname@example.org
TIME TRAVELER - is a collection of paintings inspired by Isaias Crow's travels on the physical and spiritual plane through time and space. These paintings were all painted or conceived in various geographical locations as far east as Derry, Ireland; London, UK and Paris, France to as far south as Costa Rica and within the American continent in Houston, Albuquerque, Oklahoma, Trenton, New York, Miami, Los Angeles and at his art studio in San Diego, CA.
While traveling, Crow received epiphanies about life, relationships, love, death and about being a soul at the core. The connection and access we have to other souls living in the spirit realm and our pre-birth plan - of what we "chose" to experience while experiencing life. All the while Crow is painting canvases and murals in the places that he's visiting with the materials that are or aren't available and with that also discovering different techniques and approaches to his art. As a result, he's transmitting positive energy frequencies from all these different locations and conveying that onto the canvas.
This collection compiles all these different experiences into one moment in time - Isaias Crow's first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, California. We present to you TIME TRAVELER.
"I remember while in London:
Standing still at the London Bridge Tube Station, I had a realization, I like it here. The tunnels, the connections of subways, the diverse cultures that are all moving from one line to another, countless people traveling to their destination. The energy is like none other that I've encountered other than New York's subways . I hold back tears. I have an understanding that what is inside is outside. This infrastructure is the same / a replica of how our souls navigate to arrive to this space - earth. In the tube we all travel as one - we get off at different destinations and at different times. Yet we all came from the same source - the same train station.
Reflecting on my artwork now, I see that creating the C-Rollers (paint rollers I cut out to create different linear sizes) and all the pattern work with multitude of colors is my rendition - my understanding of this interior and exterior infrastructure - the plan - the pre-birth plan.
I'm on route - I'm on my path - I'm time-traveling. I'm a TIME TRAVELER."
