“I have been drawing most of my life, and have been passionate about art most of my life. The only other thing I may be just as passionate about is music. So in this piece I decided to meld the two passions by creating this portrait of one my musical influences.”
Joaquin Ceniceros born and raised in the Bay Area, Hayward more specifically.
