About the artist:
Bearface is a 33 year old artist born and raised in ABQ! he has been painting and drawing his whole life. Around 1997, he was introduced to the hip-hop and graffiti movement, and thus began his adventure in exploration of graffiti and street art. It was around 2000, Bearface realized he always wanted to be a graffiti writer, and still is to this day!
As time moves on, and Bearface grows older, his family has become a huge influence on exploration of new ideas as well as mashing styles that he works with as a craftsman (by trade). This is where he birthed the style of his hand lettering mixed with touches of abstract and fine art techniques, that also include character work and woodworking.
You will see all of these styles, as we present new work from Bearface, as well as older incarnations of his artistry! We look forward to your attendance!
