Isaac Pelayo

Not many people know what they want to be at the age of two. But in the case of fine artist Isaac Pelayo, this is true. Born in Los Angeles, CA, on June 7th, 1996, Isaac picked up a pencil at a tender age and discovered a profound passion. He was compelled to mirror his father and fellow fine artist, Antonio Pelayo Jr., but produce art of his own in the process. Growing up, he found comfort in solace, as it allowed him to learn what being committed and dedicated meant and he embraced his love for the craft. His work initiated as a child; from sketching and coloring Disney characters, to now drawing and painting life-like pieces in depth and minuscule detail using only a pencil and brush. His influences and inspirations lie in his family, other visual artist’s, musical artist’s, and the idea of improving his skill on a daily basis. His massive skill didn’t take long to open up success for him. He’s won several first placement awards and the first being at the 2008 12th Annual Western Art Show in Riverside, CA at the age of only 11. Isaac has been published in several books, magazines, and news papers such as Frank 151, Out of Step Books, LA Weekly, and recently landing the cover of the 2016 Los Angeles Latino Heritage Month Calendar and Cultural Guide. Isaac has also exhibited in several well-known galleries and museums such as MOLAA, The Trotsky Museum, Known Gallery, Street Art Fair For Jeff Hamilton, The Seventh Letter Gallery, La Luz De Jesus Gallery, Burbank Art Center, Donna Beam Gallery, Plaza De La Raza, and Gallery 446 to name a few. He is an ambitious young adult who strives to challenge.
