El Paso Artists That Are Absolutely Worth Checking Out
You go anywhere in El Paso & you can see some truly amazing artwork. Whether it's on the side of a building, online, or by transforming your trash into art, El Paso art is truly a sight to behold. And here are some El Paso artists whose work is absolutely checking out.
Urbanart915: Jeriel Farias, aka Urbanart915, has some truly beautiful artwork that you might have seen on some buildings around town. He's a local photographer whos wall art has definitely caught the attention of El Paso. If you're a Lisa Frank fanatic, you might be familiar with Urbanart915.
Chuco Chamuco: If you love cartoons, Chuco's page is definitely worth checking out. You might have seen him at a couple of Comic Cons in & outside of El Paso or maybe even seen his work in the El Paso Art Museum.
GTA El Chuco: If you love seeing things made into the style of GTA, this is one artist I highly recommend. I actually included his artwork in an article on why El Paso is the perfect setting for a Grand Theft Auto game. You can see more of his stuff there but here are two of my favorite works he's done:
Jessie Gandarilla: Joanna already did an article about him specializing in creating art that might look like your favorite cartoon character. But his artwork is so phenomenal, I HAD to include him again here.
Lilalex915: Art is not just limited to the medium of paper or a wall or digital. Tattoos are absolutely a form of art. Lilalex915 is one of many amazing tattoo artists in El Paso & if you want to see some of his work, he's got plenty on his Instagram page
Disintegrator Films: Chris Bohn, the guy behind Disintegrator Films, is not only great at producing music videos, but also 3-D art. That's what he's up to now, but he also made some amazing caricatures on huge El Paso figures. He's even done one for Dubba G & myself! So thank you for that man.
Tino Ortega: You want to talk about some amazing murals, Tino has done AMAZING work that's loved by many, including Monika & Iris from KISS FM. But it's not hard to see why; one look at his balloon murals & I think you'll understand why we love his work.
Francisco Romero: One of the most respected artists from Juarez/El Paso, has to be Francisco Romero. He's been drawing since the age of 5 & his art style is very reminiscent of stuff you'd find in history museums. In fact one of his murals was talked about on Reddit, where they gave their honest feedback on it.
I know there's plenty of artists I've left off but that's why I encourage you, if you find an artist you like, follow them & show your support.
