Gilbert Reyes

Most of my art reflects the beautiful culture, as well as the travails of the Chicanos, like my dad who came to Texas as an undocumented Mexican teenager in the late 1920s, but eventually became a United States citizen. I look forward with excitement to cultivate my belated efforts to hopefully some day also join the growing and established Latino and Latina artists who have become recognized as such a refreshing force in the arts. I am aware that my art seems somewhat amorphous, perhaps evolving, from time to time when the mood, style or subject matter inspires me.
