Emanuel Flores-Chávez uses abstract expressionism to transform experiences into powerful art. His journey began in a hotel room after a 2019 home invasion, igniting his passion for expressing raw emotion through painting. He creates bold, textured artwork using oil, acrylics, spray paint, and twine. His innovative techniques, such as mixing egg yolks for frothy textures, add a unique touch. Influenced by mentor Esteban Villa of The Royal Chicano Air Force, he honors Chicano heritage while exploring real-life experiences and emotions. His work delves into color theory’s impact on emotions, aiming to inspire viewers and connect with peers in the art world.
