CHAC Norte Presents: Lisa DiAmor Sanchez
“I am inspired by the diverse layers of the past hidden beneath layers of paint in our cities and the possibility of change and the vibrancy that change brings. A background in psychology helps to provide me with an understanding of how powerful the written word can be and why I use it so frequently in my art. As a self taught artist, I believe that in art, there are no rules.”

Bob Martinez- “Art must discover and reveal the beauty which prejudice and caricature have overlaid” -Elaine Locke

Stevon Lucero- More than a visual artist he is in truth, a philosopher artist. Each painting reflects a metaphor of his own internal dialogue between himself and God. Each piece tells a story, a story in which the ultimate intent and value lies in the future when people will have a greater understanding and appreciation for true spiritual art.
