This last Saturday the 21st I had the pleasure of witnessing my good friend and awesome Artist Gerardo Arellano receive the “Emerging Artist” award at the Mexican American Cultural Center‘s Awards of Excellence here in Austin, Tx.

Ever since I had the pleasure to meet this amazing artist, I’ve been blessed to witness how he’s grown and kick ass repeatedly with/without help and at times with a bunch of obstacles. He has persevered and is now very active and well known not only as a painter, but as a musician, PR machine, Dance Lord and basically a local celebrity!

Who would have thought that the friend of my friend that was basically my first contact here in Austin Tx ended up to be one of my favorite artists a great contact and one of my rocks here in the States. I feel very lucky to be your friend and to have crazy awesome pieces of your art!

Check his amazing work at his website or Instagram! He’s constantly working all over town so I’m sure you’ll recognize it whenever you’re wondering around; if you’re lucky you can even catch him dancing or playing the accordion on the East Side!.

Cheers Gerardo, keep’em coming, you very well deserve this and much much more 😀
