A very special evening awaits us this coming June 18, 2016 7:00pm to 10:00pm. Paul Stewart presents the first solo exhibit of our talented friend Isaac Pelayo at Over the Edge Gallery which is located at 5413 West Adams, Los Angeles, California.
The Arts community has seen this young talented artist grow and his sophisticated yet a brutal reality approach to how he perceives his surroundings has gotten us sitting on the edge awaiting to admire the final product. I enjoy his social media networks because he does not bluntly give you a final art piece; he takes you as the viewer to be a part of his artistic thinking process and flow along with his imagination and skills from the various stages of his masterpiece. He shares with the viewer the satisfaction on the final touch and we can all agree that we also feel proud and satisfied of its final product on every art piece he has been working on over the years. So I must say that I am excited and curious to see his first solo exhibit; to see the timeline of his hard work and most importantly to finally stand in front of the pieces we have all been seeing online.
“Broken Beauty” Isaac Pelayo’s first solo exhibit will be curated by his father Antonio Pelayo; congratulations to the both of you on this great accomplishment. Curating an amazingly talented young Fine Artist and its your very own son! It will also be hosted by legendary Freddie Negrete, so as you can see, this is an evening you do not want to miss. See you all there.

Bio Statement from the Artist:
Growing up I’ve watched people become depressed and somewhat broken when looking at themselves through a mirror or lens. People tend to believe what’s described and defined in the media. Hidden behind an artificially mixed mask, injected with silicon to reshape what society labels as flaws, imperfections, and ugly, altering the complexion of ones skin, and forgetting that beauty comes from within.
As a child I would stare at myself in the mirror forgetting time even existed. Paying close attention and examining my self being. Sometimes I would not like what I had seen. I started to lose confidence and self-esteem. Slowly correcting what I believed were mistakes and so-called flaws. As I grew up I realized I was wrong and accepted myself for who I am within. Everything around me suddenly became clear and more beautiful than anything I had ever seen on T.V. screens, heard on the radio, or read in vogue magazines. I realized beauty is not defined. Beauty is seen with the heart and mind, not with the eyes.
