East Los Arte
• David and Velia were born in East Los Angeles, a “historically rich, progressive community where the Chicano Movement was shaped and prominent artists, leaders, politicians, and scholars formed their ideologies.” They continually draw much of their inspiration for their work from East LA, hence the name “EastLosArte.” David is a painter, who received a BA in studio arts from the University of California, Riverside. Velia studied dance and photography in the Los Angeles area. They are happy to call Denver their home now, where they continue to create art and share their passion with the community.
