Red Bull Latagrafica was first launched in 2012 to showcase artists’ talent within the Southern California community and giving them a broader medium to display their artwork.
The Red Bull program is back as Latagrafica Edicion II, which will feature ten L.A. artists each painting an individual mural over the course of ten months.
In October a 12 oz. Red Bull can will be released with one of the selected artist’s graphics on it.
Buffalo, who is known for her multimedia stylistic art, creates her paintings using various media like acrylic, canvases and collage materials.
The mural, which spans across the front of Los Globos, was made from acrylic paint and took Buffalo five days to complete.
The mural showcases a combination of vibrant colors and feather shapes, which can serve as a testament to the artist’s strong Native roots.
“This style and what I’m kind of known for, I’ve only been doing it for a couple of years but I went to school for art,” said Buffalo.
The 26-year-old artist graduated in 2011 from Iowa State with an art degree and seems to have mastered the art of multimedia in a short time.
The South Dakota native moved to sunny Los Angeles to pursue her dream of being an artist and states that culture definitely plays a key factor in what inspires her art.
“My culture and coming here to LA just being Native American and being immersed in all these cultures in LA really influences me a lot,” continued Buffalo.
“I’ve wanted to be an artist all of my life and everybody knew too as well that I was going to be an artist,” continued Buffalo.
Inside Los Globos several of Buffalo’s canvases were on display with each of them displaying multi-layered and colorful shapes making each canvas truly unique.
Red Bull’s Latagrafica Edicion II program is their way of supporting the arts and bringing the community together.
The art unveiling was a true testament of the artistic talent steaming out of LA as 27-year-old singer/songwriter Irene Diaz was also featured alongside Buffalo.
Diaz performed a memorable set.
Diaz, who was accompanied on stage by two fellow musicians, sang several songs and captivated the audience with her powerful and sultry voice.
Red Bull’s Latagrafica program will continue to draw attention to the L.A. art community throughout the year with a new mural unveiling the 15th of each month at a different location.
