Roberto Mendez

Direct from Brooklyn's renowned Micro Museum comes the work of Roberto Mendez!

Backlit digital painting

Roberto began his artistic endeavors in Patterson, California where at the early age of 5 he began painting and drawing. He drew inspiration from the likes of Leonardo Da Vinci rather than Disney cartoons. His fascination with art was as undeniable then as it is now. Roberto graduated from CSU Stanislaus in 1990 with a BA in Fine Arts. In 1994 he received his Master of Arts degree from CSU Sacramento. His widely exhibited work aims to question time and reality and explores the differences between understanding and belief.

The Many Fridas of Mirlette Islas

Mirlette Islas is the proud mommy of 3 little princesses (2 precious girls and one funny Chihuahua). Her charming work is influenced by her childhood. She has been painting and crafting since she was a young girl. When Mirlette moved to the United States with her husband and child, art-making became a way to soothe the aches of missing the homeland and culture she left behind. Much of her work pays homage to La Virgen de Guadalupe and Frida Kahlo.
