LITTLE GIRLS

I am a first generation Mexican American and self-taught artist. I was born and raised in East LA. After living in New York and San Francisco for a 10-year period, I moved back to Los Angeles and in the summer of 1998, I started my series called Little Girls.

The idea stems from a drawing I completed 27 years ago while in high school. My Little Girls are a reflection of myself; they are simple, colorful, silly, and each has a little twist to her. I use mostly acrylic and pencil on 4”x6” canvas.

Why not a “little boy?”

With a little boy I feel restricted to what I can imagine. With a little girl I feel freedom, joy, and an endless sense of possibility. It’s like playing with dolls and I get to play dress-up.

Currently, I'm also working on my latest photo series called LITTLE.LITTLE is a collection of photographs inspired from vintage toys by Fisher Price’s Little People. It is a series based on the reflections of a little boy now living as a 43-year old man. The images are culture driven and whimsical, as if seeing through a child’s eyes.

As a little boy and even as a teenager, I loved playing games alone in my room. I spent hours creating worlds and imaginary friends. With LITTLE, I get to regress and play again. With LITTLE, I have the opportunity to express and share the random thoughts, ideas, and visions that pass through my head as go about daily life.
