About the event

Un Grito Gallery is pleased to present "Adventures of Mr. Piñata SA" and other favorite works by Avi Avalos. The exhibition will open Thursday, April 4th and Friday, April 5th, 2024, from 7-10 pm with a closing reception held on April 18th, 2024.

James “Avi” Avalos is a multi-media artist from San Antonio, Texas. His notoriety as a celebrated artist has developed through use of iconography that playfully engages viewers resulting in a positive experience with art leaving both young, old and everyone in-between with an experience to talk about. Working in installation and performance art, as well as fine art paintings, printmaking, and sculpture he will use any media possible to make a statement or to create conversation. His work covers neutral or obvious perspectives on politics, culture, faith, love and over all fun.

“My pursuit has been answering the question, what is the purpose of art in society? I believe that it should inspire, bring joy, and invite conversation on topics and ideas in a non-threatening yet visually attractive way. Using iconography and pop art I have developed my visual language of bringing up ideas of culture, politics, faith, love, and joy amongst other ideas. My goal is to use relatable themes to elevate these ideas in a palatable way for all walks of life.”
