Armando Sebastian was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico. At an early age he became interested in theater and fashion, which later evolved into his expression through narrative painting. Sebastian weaves autobiographical details into his work with bright colors and symbols reminiscent of the ex-voto allegory genre. Themes of identity and gender are frequently featured, with reference to poets and music icons amid vibrant landscapes. He has been exhibiting his work in the North Texas region for the past decade in venues such as the Arlington Museum of Art and the Latino Cultural Center among others, as well as with galleries based in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York City. In 2017, he was recognized with the Artistic Merit Award granted by the ArtSpace111 in its Fourth Annual Regional Juried Exhibition in Fort Worth, Texas. In 2018, he was included in the juried exhibition, New Texas Talent, at Craighead Green Gallery and was a participating artist in MaricónX, a group show that traveled to multiple cities across the state of Texas. His work has been featured in publications such as the Dallas Morning News and PublicArt magazine among others. Armando Sebastian currently lives and works in Dallas, TX.
