Alex Rubio

Last night Emily and I went to see Alex Rubio's new show at the Blue Star Contemporary Art Center in San Antonio, Texas. The show consisted of colorful vivid paintings and some large woodcut prints. I am a big fan of Alex Rubio not only because of his talent and achievements, but because he represents his people. Rubio is a very important contributor to the Chicano Art Movement and has been a working artist for many years. He is a living legend and a hero to the city of San Antonio and Rubio does what he can to give back to his people.
I got to meet Alex Rubio at his show and I was really excited to see how nice and down to earth he was. He even invited us to his studio after the show to hang out, have a drink and see some more of his work. If you have a chance, Google him and you will see how amazing his work is.
