Exhibition: Border to Mars
BRIEF BIO: Gabriel Trevino is a native of Brownsville, Texas. He is the fourth child of five children – raised on the Texas, Mexico border (Matamoros –Brownsville). As a child, Gabriel had always been a creative person who spent his time doodling and putting things together. His interest in literary art was not until his last year of high school (1994). His first formal drawings were in an art class competition, fared well, and got the attention that motivated him to proceed with interest. After high school, Gabriel continued to produce drawings and sought formal training in 1997 at the University of Texas at Brownsville art program under renowned artist Carlos Gomez. In the summer of 1998, Gabriel was granted a one-man art show at the Rone-personon Art Gallery – the University of Texas B after a productive year.
It wasn’t until 2005 that Gabriel restarted his art career through a series of art displays at the local flea market – an idea he called “exploring the idea of art in a primitive art culture.” Gabriel received his first break and was recognized as a notable artist throughout the art community after a show at the University of Texas at Brownsville in an art exhibit curated by artist and professor Carlos G. Gomez titled Four Emerging Artist: Gabriel Trevino, Mauricio Saenz, Luis Valderas, Jesus de la Rosa.
Gabriel is now an active visual artist working as a production manager for the Brownsville Society for the Performing Arts.
