About artist/note:

The "Crime by Cuevas" series was commissioned by the Lublin publishing house, with the purpose of being published in a luxury book. His source of inspiration would be the city, so he thought to title it "Visions without LSD", however, two days after arriving in New York, he decided to change the name to "Crime by Cuevas", due to the influence of a program television about assassinations, violent demonstrations and youth riots.
