Art of Life, Love of Art Edgar Alejandro Gamez Sosa

Edgar Alejandro Gamez Sosa is an abstract painter from Phoenix, Arizona. Edgar’s love for art came at a very young age. His family are all artists! He remembers always being surrounded by works from Diego, Frida, and Picasso in his childhood home. 

He learned a lot of his methods through different forms of art. As a child, he used papier-mâché and balloons to make superhero masks. As he got older he watched another student in art class graffiti his name. Edgar asked him to tag his name, which immediately changed his love for art! He couldn’t stop thinking about letters! During his high school years, he visited the Phoenix Art Museum where he had another life-changing experience realizing at that point he wanted to paint canvas.

With color and motion as her tools, Julie strives to capture the magic of the world that she felt as a child. When she steps into the studio, she welcomes back her child-like wonderment and freedom that allows her to reveal intriguing connections, hidden meanings, and universal truths. She’s continually inspired by the bold, rich beauty of the Sonoran desert.
