About the artist:
Alexis Velasco is an up-and-coming artist born and raised in East Los Angeles, and currently living in San Pedro, CA. Alexis developed a love for art early on in her life. She studied at Ramon Cortines School for the Visual and Performing Arts in Los Angeles where she learned to use many different mediums and excelled in her art. Among artists who submitted more than 330,000 works to Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, Alexis received honorable mentions for Drawing and Illustration as well as Mixed Media for her pieces “Don’t Think” and “Why Can’t I See Anything.” In July 2017, Alexis’ piece, “Adora Is the Yearbook,” was on display at Wuho Gallery in Hollywood. Alexis recently graduated high school and will be attending California State University East Bay in Hayward, CA, this September.
This exhibition is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
