These guys in black are ADA. They are writers, and poets, designers, photographers, ‘mandarinas’, and friends. The background is a graffiti they made more than a couple years ago in Quito, in the corner of a house right in front of a gas station. They knocked the door at this house and asked for the owner, they talked him over allowing them to make their graffiti in their wall. The owner agreed. ADA arrived a Saturday morning, their CD players, their wall paint, some beers, their cameras, a sketch, and whatever else. They took two days (and their nights) to finish it. The home owner fed them thee times a day, every day. On a Sunday night they were done. The giraffe-evolution mural was ready. Now what is left of it is just what you see, a pic.
