ALBERT REYES - Don't Give Up


ALBERT REYES - “Don’t Give Up”
Albert Reyes is a Los Angeles native who graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a B.A. in Fine Arts. Perhaps most recognized from his “Give” tag, Reyes has a style that’s influenced by street art, fine art, and comic art. He’s a fun-loving human with a head for drawing, and you’d be hard pressed to catch him frowning or without a marker in hand. This book showcases his drawings, along with a few photos. Quiet, funny, striking, sometimes sad. Black and white.

About the Artist

Albert Reyes

Albert Reyes has been known to spit art on his hands and knees with a mouth full of beer in the middle of the street. He has also shown in a gallery along with a painting by Picasso. These same strange dualities and juxtapositions are highly prevalent in his work, which tackles both conceptual and graffiti art. Recognized for his ubiquitous “GIVE” tag, Albert has a distinctive artistic approach inspired not only by street art, comic books, and American pop culture; but also by contemporary and classical “high art”. Many of his drawings and illustrations incorporate everything from icons of corporate America to Hollywood stars to mass media to politics to consumerism. Reyes has exhibited at the Tree House Gallery, JUNC Gallery, Bent Gallery, Giant Robot LA SF NY, New Image Art Gallery LA, Black Market Gallery LA, Upper Playground SF, Low, Balazo, Ampersand, Stay Gold Gallery NYC, White Walls, Studio Number One, and in Paris, France. He has done album cover artwork for the band Le Rev and singer/songwriter Simone White. He has also appeared in the New York Times: Year In Ideas, Swindle, Chicano Art Magazine and appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, CW’s Online Nation, and CNN.
