Come check out this Latino's art!!!!
I am an artist that specializes in WWII Nose Art. Everything I paint existed on a WWII fighter or bomber. I don't make up the names or choose the imagery from random references. My work pays homage to all the men and women who fought and sacrificed their lives for their countries.
The pieces I paint are 3' X 4' machine contoured, hand drilled, hand riveted and weigh about 20 pounds. I previously worked in aerospace as a structure mechanic, so I combined my aircraft knowledge with my art training and came up with my work.
I have an exhibit Saturday November 10th (6:00PM) at Ink'd Chronicles Tattoo Shop in Pomona, CA.October 26, 2012 at 8:58 am
