Alaska Artist Tijuana Artist

Ketchikan artist Ricardo Burquez rides past Tongass Trading Company on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2020 at Berth 2 in Ketchikan, Alaska. Burquez plans to fix the damaged mural "Tireless Tides" at Dock and Main streets after he returns from a trip this to Tijuana, Mexico later this month. The artist plans to repair the mural with supplies donated from the community , as well as his own, but he wants to restore the work for a greater life goal. "I like to do this, cause it was a gift for the children and it's nice to get all the community involved, and I'm very happy and obligated to do it, cause it was a very nice experience." said Burquez. In addition to restoring the section of fence that was damaged Burquez will touch-up the entire work and add a few new "creatures" to the seascape. He plans to start restoration work around the months of March and April.
