🖋 Artist's bio
My name is Brandon Aguayo and I am 28 years old. I grew up in Marlboro, New Jersey and would consider myself self-taught. I have been drawing ever since I can walk and have stuck with it ever since. I am very grateful to be blessed with a gift from God. Art means the world to me and has became a lifestyle for me. There is not a day that goes by where I don’t do some form of art. Whether it is a sketch or finished piece, my heart is in it. There is no other feeling in the world that can replace the escape of creating. Unfortunately, at the age of 19, I was arrested because of a mistake that I made. I have been incarcerated ever since. Throughout my incarceration, I have grown so much as an artist. I learned how to oil paint as well as other various medias. Thanks to a supportive family by my side, they have contributed to my growth as an artist by sending me art boos that I am able to study and apply what I learnt. The beautiful thing about being an artist is that we are continuously learning from one another, and it never ends. I have about 2 and a half years upon my release and I have big plans for my career as an artist. We are all human beings and we all make mistakes. I have learned so much from experience. There are not only bad people behind these walls. There is a lot of good hearted people and talented who deserve to show the world what they have to offer. I thank you Art for redemption for this opportunity and hope you enjoy the art!.
