Albert Reyes
Albert Reyes is an LA based artist who uses a graphite pencil and scraps of paper to create ghetto-fied drawings of pop culture. Reyes work hovers between conceptual art hanging in galleries and graffiti art on the streets (featuring scantily clad laydeez who look fresh from a Snoop Dogg video).

Inspired by comic books and American pop culture, Reyes draws Hollywood icons and tackles issues to do with consumer culture and politics, all the while mixing low and high culture until they become indistinguishable from each other.

Last year Reyes also hand built a maze from materials he found on the streets of LA, dispensing his art on tall walls, broken fences, doors and pieces of cardboard. Much mole interesting than hanging art on a wall, right?
