Roberto Benavidez: SERRATE

October 3rd- 24th 2015. 

Opening exhibit on October 3rd, 3- 6pm. 

Roberto Benavidez is a self-described 'half-breed, south Texan, queer' artist based in Los Angeles. Benavidez experimented with traditional craft forms, and now specializes in sculpturally elegant and fantastical piñatas. Roberto’s mixed cultural heritage, history and identity, and interest in high and low art forms has resulted in a philosophy and practice that spans a series of intersections between self and culture. 

“It is these intersections that reveal the most about me as an artist who grew up closeted in the 80s, at odds with both white and latino peers, constantly encountering judgment and fear.” Artist Roberto Benavidez says “I see myself as a bridge between worlds, respectfully blending disparate elements to provoke thought and transform cultural practices.”
