Artist Armando Silva was born in Sombrerete, Zacatecas, Mexico. At five, his family moved to the Northern Colorado area in search of the American Dream. Enamored with American pop-culture, Armando began experimenting with visual and performing arts. He drew inspiration from television, music, and his own family history.

As he grew up he became more comfortable sharing his gifts with the world. To hone his skills he attended The Universtiy of Northern Colorado where he earned a BA in Fine Arts. He first became known for his live painting performance art shows but has recently opened a studio and gallery in his hometown of Greeley, Colorado.

Armando's work is vibrant and each one, as he explained, told an amazing story. His new gallery space is part of a collaboration between himself and Keynote Coffee a local coffee roaster, meaning you can enjoy a great cup of coffee while taking in Armando's work.

Having his own space has been a dream of his for quite some time. "As a creative, I look for opportunities to present my artwork in order to paint a bigger picture," Armando said. The new gallery in Greeley allows him to do just that. If you can't make it to Greeley you can visit ARTMANDOSILVA.COM where you can purchase limited edition prints and original works.
