About The Artists
The MILAGROS Collective, consisting of Felici Asteinza from San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and Joey Fillastre from Lakeland, Florida, was selected to paint Decatur’s newest MARTA Overpass Mural.
Felici and Joey have extensive mural experience, including a Public Art Commission for the New Orleans Public Library (right); 2015 Murals in Greensboro, North Carolina, hosted by the Elsewhere museum and funded by ArtPlace America; an Art in Public Places mural on the Yates Parking Garage in Jacksonville, Florida (below right); and others.
What sets the MILAGROS Collective apart, according to Angie Macon, director of the Decatur Arts Alliance, is their extensive community engagement experience in creating their murals and other pieces. Angie says they have a commitment to and an excitement for the community engagement process around their projects.
