East End Studio Gallery presents Games, an exhibition of paintings by Rafael Villarreal and selected works from guest artists.

Join us as we host the third solo exhibition for this up and coming artist.  His images invoke dialogue and thought about success, failure, identity and other human conflicts through his narrative, surrealistic and sometimes humorous paintings.

Born and raised in Houston, TX, Rafael has used art as a catalyst for creative expression since childhood.  An overactive imagination and natural talent for drawing lead him to discover graffiti art at age 15.  He became one of Houston’s top graffiti artists in the late 90’s while also completing many acrylic murals.  His direction evolved to oil painting and the study of fine art in 1997 and has been his main focus since.  See more of Rafael’s paintings at  Guest artists:  Article, Dro and Astro
