Marisabel Bazan, Panamanian singer, songwriter and artist, created the Butterfly Collection initially in response to the grief she experienced after her close friend committed suicide. Butterflies started manifesting throughout the experiences of honoring her friend. She began prolifically painting butterfly murals and canvases all over cities.

“I feel like that is what art is. Letting your silence speak.”-Marisabel Bazan
