White Walls is proud to present a new body of work by Albert Reyes this September. Reyes questions culture, race and the idea of self through autobiographical illustrations. Please join us for the opening reception on September 12th, 2009 from 7pm till 11pm.
Albert Reyes’ new body of work reflects a unique hybrid of contemporary pop culture and classical art theory. His graphite pencil and ballpoint pen illustrations are drawn on the inside of book covers offering cohesiveness to the diverse imagery. He incorporates everything from pop icons and politicians to the girl next door. Reyes draws realistic yet surreal portraits with a bit of street credibility, often referencing jailhouse art, graffiti and Los Angeles Latino culture. Each piece is composed with diverse measures of contemplation and is often accompanied with poetic words and emotion.
Albert Reyes was born in Los Angeles, and later moved to the Bay Area where he received his BFA in interdisciplinary arts from San Francisco Art Institute. He studied various types of printmaking, as well as film but drawing has always been the focus of his work. This will be Reyes second show at White Walls. He has exhibited in LA, New York and Paris and has shown in galleries such as Giant Robot, Upper Playground SF, Black Market Gallery and Studio Number One.
