About the Artist // A self taught artist from Escondido, California. Edwin Vasquez expresses through vibrant colors the everyday life of Mexico and its people. In his mid-twenties, he began traveling to parts of Mexico routinely; exploring the culture and landscape. His style expresses the vibrancy of life he found there despite the poverty and struggle faced by many. His work celebrates the unique heritage of the areas he has visited, portraying the pieces of old culture that still exist today. Edwin Vasquez continues to express his emotions through art, and is pushing himself more than ever before to get his message to the public and solidify his aesthetic and tone.
About the Gallery // Distinction Gallery was created in 2004 to give beginning and established collectors a venue to purchase high-quality, artwork created by highly skilled artists. Distinction has hosted over 130 exhibitions since its inception featuring mid-career and professional artists. The primary genres forwarded at Distinction are Contemporary Realism, Surrealism and Urban art with a focus on the figure. Our primary media focus is original oil and acrylic paintings; however, we occasionally display drawings and mixed media. Distinction’s artwork is available for purchase online to clients around the world and most of our artists are available for commissions. Please feel free to contact us with questions.
In order to further expand our offerings to our community, we converted part of our 7,0000 arts complex to ArtHatch, a non profit organization, in 2011. ArtHatch rents exhibition and studio space to emerging artists as well as offers a free teen program. Additionally we have two escape rooms and an Art Bar (Last Spot) within our building.
