Robert Vargas is a contemporary artist known for his mixed-media portraits, murals, and live events and is a leading creative force in the revitalization of Downtown LA’s art scene. Vargas will officially receive a proclamation from Los Angeles City Hall commemorating Robert Vargas Day which will be celebrated every year on September 8th in the City of Los Angeles.
Vargas hopes that every September 8th people do something to help young creatives fulfill their dreams by sending them on their path with the tools they need to succeed. Vargas believes that any act of support no matter how small will not go unnoticed by the young creative. It will plant the seeds of what’s possible, which is the heartbeat of a creative, and we have the power to contribute to the artistic future of the world by supporting others.
The private ceremony will take place on Thursday, September 16, 2021, on the rooftop of TENTEN Wilshire and be streamed on Robert Vargas’s Instagram and Facebook for patrons to tune in live and support.

About Robert Vargas
Robert Vargas was born and raised in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. His paintings and drawings infuse classic genres of portraiture and nudes with an avant-garde explosivity that not only captures the visage and likeness of his subjects but seems to excavate the intimate aspects of their character. Vargas selects his subjects intuitively at his highly attended live-painting sessions, creating powerful and sublime representations of the human connection through his portraiture. His visual vocabulary pulls from life experience, a viscerally sensual approach to line and texture, and an almost mannerist choreography of abstraction and representation that combine to unforgettable effect in his portraits.
