"Ben Swatez is one of the most prolific and amazing "artivist mural painters"  that travels the world creating art that heals, inspires, energizes, educates, and brings people of all ages together to support the Culture of Peace and Global Harmony.  I have known Ben for many years and have never witnessed anyone else that puts forth so much heart, spirit, and physical effort to create masterpieces of work that expresses the voices of the voiceless and brings so much joy and light to humanity, when there seems to be so much conflict and darkness these days."

"Art is a powerful form of expression that is often underestimated. Art Charged with positive energy & love spreads light & hope around Puerto Rico during one of the darkest moments in our island’s history. In the moment when we needed it the most, life itself managed to provide people who Carrie a brush coloured with paint from their hearts. For us, this person was our friend Benjamin. A friend Who spread his love, kindness, positive energy and, most importantly, hope into many corners of our Borniquen through his art."
 

Hon. Jose’ Che Perez, | State representative from 18th District of Puerto Rico
