Originally from Lima, Peru, Alvaro Roble grew up on the westside of Los Angeles. The 80’s and 90’s were a violent time for a young Latino man in LA and Alvaro used art to turn his life around. Growing up in west LA also exposed Alvaro to many different cultures. He draws his inspirations from graffiti and the Pop Art of the 1980’s. His vibrant colors and bold line work perfectly capture his past and influences.
Reception: June 24, 2016, 5 to 7 pm Peninsula Center Library Foyer
