Los Angeles based , and San Francisco Art Institute educated , artist  
Albert Reyes  has a profound passion and respect for conceptual as  
well as graffiti  art . Renowned for his ubiquitous "GIVE" tag,  
Albert Reyes has a distinctive artistic approach inspired not only by  
street art, comic books, and contemporary American pop culture but  
also by contemporary and classical "high art".
Icons of corporate America and Hollywood , mass media, politics, and  
consumerism are often drawn into his work with an insolent and even  
subversive verve ; a deliberate and secure hand guides the exquisite  
execution of his drawings.

Gallery, Giant Robot, New Image Art Gallery , and Black Market in Los  
Angeles; at the Upper Playground, Low , Balazo , and  Ampersand
