Born and raised in Los Angeles, Armando DeLA Torre aims to delineate life through various means of artistic expression. An explorational entrepreneur, his vision continues to transgress beyond photography, digital and canvas artwork, and creative writing. Aside from his art, he remains part-owner of Guisados, a mexican restaurant located in Boyle Heights & Echo Park.
A major thanks to my brothers Ray Vargas and Kelcey Fisher in delivering their time and talents to such a lengthy endeavor at Guisados. Crazy to think that its been over a year since we started this 127-foot mural, and its finally come to an end.
Before we opened EchoPark, I had a vision that this would be a major collaboration and that I could bridge the gap between two opposing styles. The evidence in their differences are here in our signatures; with Ray’s talent in life-like abilities, and Kelcey’s phycadellic abstract touches, I could bridge the gap, and this could end really well, or really bad.
After over year of on and off work, the hot days, and the random acts of vandalism. We finally get to step back and admire what has evolved from Ray’s initial #sketch (which is framed for view inside the restaurant). It’s truly a beautiful wall, and I am completely humbled to put my signature next to these two men.
