Vyal Reyes began his career as an artist in 1990 when he dedicated himself to using spray paint as his "weapon of choice" to create art. A self taught artist, Vyal's work quickly grabbed the attention of fellow graffiti artists as well as galleries in Los Angeles and around the globe . This has allowed Vyal to be a continuous and important presence in the street art/ graffiti art movement in Los Angeles for over 20 years. Although his work has evolved, it is still recognizable as his own with bright colors and refined shading and complex yet simple approaches to his medium and surfaces. His trademark "eyes" always find a way into his pieces. At times Vyal includes these eyes in his work as an spiritual offering and "praise" to one of his most cherished senses. "WHAT IS AN ARTIST WITHOUT HIS EYES?"
His work is included in collections at The Getty, MOCA, and the Neiman Marcus private collections. Activist minded Vyal gives back to his community as much as possible by donating art and time to non profits and schools around LOS ANGELES. When he is not painting murals or canvases Vyal teaches aerosol art classes to youth and adults alike at SELF HELP GRAPHICS in Boyle Heights CA., where he has been an artist in residence since 2011.
During the week of September 4th - 9th, Street Theory Gallery, Underground at Ink Block and House of Roulx unite to bring together local and internationally renowned artists for an inspiring week of street art, panel discussions, exhibits, and celebrations.
The 2017 Underground Mural Project will transform over 100,000 sq. ft. of walls at the Underground Ink park-- from a previously underutilized space between Boston's South End and South Boston neighborhoods into a unique urban park and visual playground. Stay tuned on Instagram for artist announcements and events through the week. Park officially opens on Saturday, September 9th, 2017.
