Robert Liu-Trujillo is a visual artist and father, born and raised in the Bay Area, who employs the use of illustration, storytelling, and public art to tell tales. These tales manifest in a variety of forms and they reflect the artist's cultural background, dreams, and political / personal beliefs. "My motivation to do what I do is to be a positive and nurturing influence on my son. It is to honor my ancestors and my family by passing on our visual art traditions, to give, to learn, to challenge the educational system both public and private, and to make sure more artwork that fuses ethnic studies, political commentary, personal history, and dynamic visual styles using a variety of media is prominent, loud, unapologetic, and just what some of us need."
