Bridging Homeboy Industries: Otis College ~ Jan. 26th

Reception: Saturday, January 26, 4-6pm

This exhibition of three working artists with roots in the East L.A. neighborhood of Boyle Heights, and Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention program in the nation,includes works by each artist and a new, large-scale collaborative mural.

Fabian Debora, now a staff member at Homeboy Industries, makes compellingly honest paintings influenced by Chicano and contemporary representational art. Alex Kizu's color-infused canvases feature variations on the highly complex and ornate graffiti lettering he learned as a boy from local street artists, and knowledge gained as a recent graduate of the Art Department of Cal St Northridge (CSUN).  Juan Carlos Muñoz Hernandez's bronze sculptures and spray paint-and-marker paintings fuse graffiti with diagrammatic architectural drawings, and grow out of an 18-year apprenticeship with the sculptor Robert Graham and a background in street art.
