BACK

I was born in Los Angeles, California in 1972. I started my career painting murals in the Skid Row neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1993 and continued creating murals in Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Oakland, Barcelona, Vitoria, Sevilla, Madrid, Lleida, Tolosa, Bilbao, etc… Muralism is my primary discipline which I continue to this day.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from Northwestern University (Evanston, IL), double majoring in History of the Americas and Art Theory and Practice with a Certificate in Latin American Studies. I relocated to Europe in 2001 where I continue my artistic practice.
In 2007 I co-founded IMVG (Itinerario Muralístico de Vitoria-Gasteiz), an organization that has producied over 20 large scale murals in the city and its surroundings. IMVG is a functioning organization with several projects in the works for 2018 and beyond.
I have participated in numerous conferences and forums relating to public art, cultural engagement and civic action, sharing my experiences and providing training workshops for artists and arts administrators.
I complement my professional activity organizing cultural projects that focus on participatory art and offering my artistic services to the private sector, institutions, (public, private, educational, etc.)
To get a broader look into my artistic practice I invite you to see my work on this page or to pay me a visit at my studio in Vitoria-Gasteiz.
