I, Gabriel Arguello, am an aspiring artist out of southern California. My love for art stems from my childhood interest in comic books. I began re-creating what I saw in the comic books and grew as an artist from there. I have always preferred drawing people & characters rather than inanimate objects, graffiti, or landscapes, and I generally tend to stick to realism and surrealism; although, on rare occasion, I opt for more of a cartoon style.
I am comfortable working in a variety of mediums, from sculpture to watercolor to acrylic, although ink, graphite, & colored pencil are definitely my strengths. I enjoy working on paper and canvas, but recently I’ve grown an affinity for working on wood. Incorporating the interesting textures, colors, and wood grain into the finished piece has proven to be an intriguing challenge that I gladly accept. I hope to continue to expand my horizons and explore a wider variety of mediums, and subject matter as I continue to progress and grow.
