Alvaro Roble: Artworks

Exhibit runs June 21-August 15, 2015
Reception, 5 to 7 pm, Friday June 24

Originally from Lima, Peru, Alvaro Roble grew up on the west-side of Los Angeles. The 80’s and 90’s were a violent time for a young Latino man in LA and Alvaro used art to turn his life around.  Growing up in west LA also exposed Alvaro to many different cultures. He draws his inspirations from graffiti and the Pop Art of the 1980’s. His vibrant colors and bold line work perfectly capture his past and influences..
