Visual Artist Sofia Maldonado has a little something for Times Square's tourists. She's just finished a dope as hell mural featuring explosive colors, organic forms, and a crew of Latina women.

Backed by the Cuban Artists Fund and the Times Square Alliance, Sofia spent two weeks sketching, painting, and detailing the the wood cut-outs that make up the piece. Starting February 26, look for the splash of culture on 42nd Street between 7th and 8th avenues.

LOOSEWORLD snuck into the Blank SL8 space at Port Authority to get a peek of the work in progress. Watch our video to hear from the artist herself about the mural and her experiences on the mean streets of Hartford, Connecticut.

Thanks to Sofia Maldonado, Christina Santanastaso, Ka-Man Tse, Glenn Weiss, and the Times Square Alliance.
