About The Artwork

Loco Coco was walking a balloon shaped dog when I first met him in a art exhibition in Boyle Heights, CA. Loco Coco is a symbol of a child dream of wanting to be an artist and unable to imagine doing anything else. Pursuing a career in the arts is a labor of love and sometimes I feel like I am trapped in a 8 years old dream of being an artist like it or not. The clown hat is a wood cut out and extends outside the canvas frame. The white top half in preview mode is blank in real life.

Francisco Palomares has used art to overcome the socioeconomic obstacles of his East LA neighborhood since his youth. He converted these disadvantages into opportunities in which he saw each street as visual narratives emanating the challenges and beauty of an ever-changing environment. As a young artist, he studied the fundamentals of drawing and painting. Francisco’s practice would allow him to train at Ryman Arts and earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts from California State University, Long Beach. He later flew to Florence, Italy and Guangzhou, China to study art. After his travels, he relocated his studio PalomaresBLVD, to his neighborhood of Boyle Heights. In this space, Palomares paints the clashing streets and diverse BLVD’s of the city’s urban landscape. PalomaresBLVD invites the viewer to take a walk in the shoes of the artist to understand—through the complex images documented in his paintings—what it truly means to work, live, and play in the City of LA.
