About Armando Renteria

My Art is Positive full of Love and Family with a hint of Exploration, while telling a short Story with hidden Drama and self Discovery.

The Creative Process Artist,
Armando Renteria, organically begins the painting without exactly knowing what the final outcome will be. The painting is created from a place of complete zen and by allowing the paints and brush strokes to dictate the outcome. After the initial layout is set, Armando goes back and enhances the colors and shapes to what his inner subconscious is moving him to create. When the piece is entirely done, the messages and the story naturally take place. The writing exploration and painting can now be explained. When a painting goes untitled, it will most likely be because the real story is too emotionally hard to put into words.

Bio,
My painting style is bold, colorful, and transcends various mediums. Inspiration for my pieces comes from family, life experiences, faith in God, and curiosity about the world and all of the people around me. When creating, I focus on the scale of human feelings – sadness to ecstasy, fear to love, doubt to trust – and strive to infuse my artwork with range of emotions. I want my pieces to tell a personal story to every person who sees them. I am a member of the Blanquel Art Gallery, I participate in local community art events, and aspire to become a household name known for human leadership.

1979
My Mom decided there would be a better life in the United States of America for her. She met my dad and quickly left him after realizing that he was not serious about becoming a dad. She then went back to Tijuana, Mexico for a couple of months. When she was 8 months pregnant, she decided to cross the border with an uncle of hers. They spent a cold night on the hills to avoid “La Migra”. After making it to a safe place, my mom’s friend let her stay with her in Los Angeles until I was born.

In Tijuana, Mexico, at the age of five, I began school and took two buses to and from school. While traveling, I studied people, buildings, cars, and the occasional rainfall.

My mom also met Francisco Gomez who later became my step dad.
