Sergio Barrale is a Los Angeles, CA based artist who was born in New York and graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
Barrale connects the use of graphite in his work to a naturalistic need for creative expression, and human desire to comprehend contemporary events rooting back to ancestral times. His large-scale works seek to incite a conversation about past approaches to religion as well as capture an outlook on it today as an ethical code, reformed without emphasis on hierarchy, but alternatively on individual truth and morality.
