Luis Fileto Artist Bio:

BIO To be born in Los Angeles is a redundancy at best. It is the place where one seeking a rebirth arrives at and purposely stays. To have your family, migrated in 1974 from Durango, Mexico, brings you to earth at this place becomes for you a triple jeopardy; either you have two changes to pursue a mission successfully or simply become a naught. So on Christmas 1975, the mother, Hermelinda Fileto, ushers in one Luis Salvador Fileto to the world. By all accounts that birth was an unremarkable event save for his parents; a father Jose Luis Fileto, eking a living for the family vending rose and flower arrangements that showed his natural artistry and a mother struggling to do without the many things her surroundings had exhibited yet little afforded. An impetus mission, his father undertook the grafting of the son with passion to expressing himself through colors. A bend of heritage thus, endowed, took him invariable on repeated scavenging forays into many constructions sites, alleys, railroad tunnels and such like locales for discarded sheet-rock and unused paint cans-the former for improvised canvas and latter as means of expressing. And the father dies before his naturally prescribed time. Without a shepherd and growing up in the City of Los Angeles, joining gangs could not be very far behind. In that environment and his budding capability, spray paint cans have thus become the new tools for his expression. Los Angeles, aside from numerous anonymous walls arts, that period saw the issuing of a son, Devist- an apropos graffiti name. His unrelenting struggles against his environment finally bared fruit. In 1999 when he studied at Darrel's Art Studio, having learnt from a good art instructor, how ideas are to be conceptualized in color, made into structure, and elaborated upon in many paint vehicles, A silver linking to his unremitting life being such realized. Now, humble by time though still rigorously rebellious at his core and esoteric in rendering his language in a manner bordering at being utterly discreet, Fileto is embarking on his greatest journey to date-paving a way to your mind. So you may know him at his best, you the viewer. And artist having widely, open through expressions that are effectively representative of art, as fine as we are taken to recognize art. An art form where memory of stalking the deep blue waters of Durango with a fisherman Grandfather intermesh with the living of Los Angeles-an enticing, exciting, and tasty course to experience, where joy of knowing is the only feasible outcome...
