From San Fernando, California, Armando Soria was born into a big creative family who shared a great passion for art. At an early age he was introduced, influenced, and mentored by his older cousins who were knee deep into the 90’s graffiti movement. Although Armando never established himself as a graffiti artist, street references showed in his work along with 90’s comic book style illustrations. Armando’s work did not leave his sketch book until he discovered painting on canvas his freshman year in college. He never looked back. With only 2 years of painting experience Armando broke into the Los Angeles art scene showing and selling his work in numerous down town art galleries. Armando is still creating new works which have evolved into a surreal street style genre of painting.
