Oscar Arroyo is a self-taught, modern realist painter from Los Angeles, CA. While art has always been part of his life, it wasn't until 2007 that he picked up a brush and began to paint. He found the process natural, and fell in love with painting. Focusing on observations of everyday modern life, he captures moments and objects of the daily world that we sometimes tend to overlook. Pico Rivera Captured focuses on Oscar's hometown, highlighting the visions he has captured.

  1. You really captured Pico Rivera and its eerie stillness. "Manning Rd" and "Mr Ed. Liquor" are really quintessential P.R. Your still lifes share also a bit of that desolation and focus. Keep up the good work.

  2. Thank you Jose.
