New ‘Art Walk’ Painting at Disney Springs Celebrates Hispanic & Latin American Heritage Month

    Disney Springs has announced and unveiled a new piece of art for the Disney Springs Art Walk that celebrates Hispanic & Latin American Heritage Month.

    Vibrant images of life and family have been added to the Disney Springs Art Walk: A Canvas of Expression by Katerina Santos and Juan Travieso – known together as TRATOS – with a new mural titled “El Nido” (The Nest in Spanish) at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The colorful and detailed artwork represents the first time Santos and Travieso have painted their one-year-old son, Luka, and is a tribute to their Cuban roots and a celebration of Hispanic & Latin American Heritage Month.  

    The Disney Springs Art Walk features both local artists and artists from around the globe who create murals bursting with color, emotion and the spirit of their cultures. TRATOS finished “El Nido” on September 29, 2023, officially adding it to the beautifully diverse Art Walk collection which guests can find at Town Center at Disney Springs.  

    Santos and Travieso are a Cuban couple based in Miami. They said they were inspired to include their son in the painting when they were asked what was magical in their lives. The name TRATOS is a combination of the artists’ last names and means “deal” or “bond” in Spanish. They say it’s a “promise to one another to create a reality we wish to see with our paintings.”
