DIMEPIECELA SS 16 COLLECTION - GIVE TAKE A NEW CUT & SEW COLLECTION BY DIMEPIECELA.COM RELEASE DATE: 4.1.2016 Art work by Los Angeles renowned street artist Albert Reyes in collaboration with DimePiece LA. About Albert: Hi, my name is Albert Reyes. I was born in Panorama City in 1971, a suburb of Los Angeles. I grew up in El Sereno, also a suburb of Los Angeles, but to me it was more like a little village: surrounded by open spaces with hills and trails you could explore. The neighborhood is mostly working-class, mostly Hispanic people. I myself am half Mexican and half German. Ever since I was a kid, I enjoyed drawing. I was inspired by gang graffiti and the movies. You could see two movies for 75 cents back then. I drew sand people from the movie Star Wars and also did drawings of the band KISS. I was fascinated with their face makeup. I loved to draw then, and I still love to draw. My artistic arsenal consists of (in rapid fire): drawings in pencil and ink on book covers, drawings and paintings on large pieces of wood, found objects, recycled materials on book covers and wood, large silk-screened prints and small prints on paper, full installation, sculpture, video, and maze structures. My artwork now is about the world we live in-our culture, the things we do, the good, the bad, and the beautiful. I still live in El Sereno, in the house I grew up in.
