This is the secret NYC project I worked on last year! I completed several murals for Alex Stupak’s new Empellón Al Pastor restaurant in Midtown East. I worked with an eye towards symmetry and math, with organic forms balancing geometric shapes. I put emphasis on complimentary colors that would add to the warm browns and oranges of the wood and tile decor. Chef Alex, being an artist himself, gave me freedom to create something beautiful and to react to the space. This is the second Stupak/Soto collab, the first being Empellón Taqueria a few years ago. Go get a bite and enjoy some Soto art! Empellón Al Pastor is at 145 E 39th St.

"Avocado" from @Empellon.
There's something surprising about this dish and something I won't even get into. You'll have to experience it on your own. And should you get it? Yes. Enjoy!
