Erasto's latest project is to reimagine the image of Christ in a mural project for Mt Ephraim Baptist Church in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. The existing mural was painted some decades ago and portrays the European Christ with a follower kneeling in front of him. The modified mural will represent Christ as a man of African descent. The 7'X7' mural sits prominently in the center of the sanctuary just above the baptismal bath. Stay tuned for images of the updated mural.

Erasto's painting entitled (We've Always Mattered) appears in the pages of the October 8, 2020 edition of Metro Weekly, as part of a review by Doug Rule. Doug gives his upbeat review of the Speak Your Truth - Black Lives Matter Exhibit.
Erasto's "We've Always Mattered" is a message to the masses that "Black Lives Matter" is not a message to Black America but a message from Black America. We've always know we matter, we just need America to know so we can live. The piece makes note of the protest calls of the numerous marches that dotted the American landscape of 2020, following the murder of George Floyd and Beonna Taylor. The center figure of the piece, a person in a black hoodie. What assumptions does the viewer make about this figure? The wall in front of the hooded figure contains the first names of the many victims of the social pandemic that sparks the need for the slogan, "Black Lives Matter".
The exhibit runs from Oct 1, 2020 until Dec 1, 2020
Speak Your Truth | Black Lives Matter, attempts to represent the depth and diversity of the DC/MD/VA region and its reflections on the activities associated with the Black Lives Matter movement.
