Work Experience

Blaster has painted countless walls in his hometown of El Paso, TX. He has also been a part of numerous works and collaborations that stretch from California to mid Texas, as well as Kentucky, Ohio, and Juarez, Chihuahua. Projects he has worked with have led him to paint in residential and local businesses, public walls, schools, gyms, corporate offices, municipal properties, and more. He has taught and shared his knowledge of spray paint with both emerging and established artists of El Paso and continues to help them learn and grow with aerosol paint. He has participated and shown work in various shows and galleries over the last decade and continues to challenge himself with his ambitious affinity for painting.
