2020 HONOREE

TIM SAYS:
Evolving from street art to fine art is a brave choice, at which Angel has succeeded. Bravo!

Moving around a lot as a child, I was influenced by many urban types of works from graffiti to fine art and music. My current body of work is my approach in combining all my years as an artist. After studying at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, I’ve grown to envision a different direction I want to take my work.

Focusing my approach on creating a stylized work with balance and movement, as well as unity and pattern. My art is about evolving and bridging the gap between fine art and urban art.  My work primarily consists of straightforward designs and abstract geometric compositions. They are a reflection of my appreciation for simplicity and movement.

While I use a variety of materials and processes in each project, my methodology is consistent. Although there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal concerns. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work.
