Esco Alley Art
Xavier Dionne

I chose to paint this piece to speak about staying healthy, finding what makes you happy and to keep practicing kindness. The center of the mural shows two individuals hugging and showing love. What surrounds them matters and plays a role in creating a life with love. The “Somebody to love” mural is my first mural. I feel happy. I have been given an opportunity and I’ve taken on the challenges. I have learned so much along the process. I am grateful. I sometimes struggle expressing myself. My autism and severe speech delay create daily challenges, but art brings expression, hope and play into my life. I hope it brings joy to you. Somebody to love starts inside of us. I hope for good health, more play time and love to you.

 Escondido is for artists.
