El Velorio is a celebration presented by Antonio Pelayo that started in 2010, with the idea of giving emerging artists a platform to exhibit their work. From there it became an event/benefit for a different non-profit every year. In the last 4 years El Velorio has raised about 100k to benefit selected Non-Profit Organizations. This year El Velorio will give back to LA’s only multidisciplinary community arts venue dedicated to serving the Eastside neighborhoods of Los Angeles, Plaza De la Raza. To read more about Plaza de la Raza visit: plazadelaraza.org/about/history Curated by Erika Hirugami, this year's aesthetic development and exhibition will feature a wide selection of works in a variety of media and genres relating the Day of the Dead and its subjectivity as interpreted by local contemporary artists. El Velorio’s exhibition will feature hyperrealist depictions by Otto Stürcke, alongside the suprarrealism of Isaac Pelayo’s drawing and the magical realism of Katherine Brannock. Eriberto Oriol and Estevan Oriol’s portrayals of contemporary LA will be featured beside Miguel Angel Mejia’s modern Mexico via photograph. Steve Grody infuses the artistic tone with photography of graffiti art, while Skyler Gray antagonizes pop culture, David Flury, Uninanti and Erica Friend’s paintings take a deeper look at Hispanic elements in traditional aesthetic production, while Nikko Hurtado and Mark Mahoney, tattoo artist by trade give us a glimpse into a wider range of art forms. El Velorio is proud to present these contemporary artists based out of Los Angeles, and provide an alternative space for an aesthetic converge of mediums and styles at Plaza de la Raza.
