Los Angeles, California
Albert Reyes is a soft-spoken guy who loves art. He loves art for art’s sake. His goals are simple: make a living as an artist and use his talent to make a positive impact on people’s lives. This pious, Los Angeles-based artist sounds as pure as the medium he used to launch his career. Water! Well, spit—but you get the idea. The very medium Reyes has established himself in is liquid. Whether beer, water, or saliva, Reyes can make a sidewalk portrait that lasts only as long the heat allows. Lucky for purveyors of all things bitchin’, Reyes’ legacy as an artist will not dry up as soon as his spit art does; with pencil sketches, paintings, and his creepy maze Albert and his talent as an artist is here to stay.
