Albert Reyes

About Artist: Hi, my name is Albert Reyes. I was born in Panorama City in 1971, a suburb of Los Angeles. I grew up in El Sereno, also a suburb of Los Angeles, but to me it was more like a little village: surrounded by open spaces with hills and trails you could explore. The neighborhood is mostly working-class, mostly Hispanic people. I myself am half Mexican and half German. Ever since I was a kid, I enjoyed drawing. I was inspired by gang graffiti and the movies. You could see two movies for 75 cents back then. I drew sand people from the movie Star Wars and also did drawings of the band KISS. I was fascinated with their face makeup. I loved to draw then, and I still love to draw. My artistic arsenal consists of (in rapid fire): drawings in pencil and ink on book covers, drawings and paintings on large pieces of wood, found objects, recycled materials on book covers and wood, large silk-screened prints and small prints on paper, full installation, sculpture, video, and maze structures. My artwork now is about the world we live in-our culture, the things we do, the good, the bad, and the beautiful. I still live in El Sereno, in the house I grew up in. I would like to infiltrate the art establishment. Get in there and fuck things up. Be creative and have a great time. You know, change things. Shit that sounds too much like politics. I just want to start my own religion where people get rewarded for doing good, new, creative things. I look at my life and at my artwork- it’s all same thing to me. Everything I do is my artwork. If its making someone laugh in a conversation by telling a joke, or making someone smile when they look at a drawing or painting I’ve made. I believe whatever comes out of a person-that’s their artwork. So make it good, make it honest, and know that there are people out there who respond deeply to honesty. Creatively, that’s where I’m trying to come out of-honesty.
