Ceramics Symposium Featured Artist: Roberto Lugo

Roberto Lugo is one of the featured artists in the upcoming Ceramics Symposium on March 11-12.

“I began my path in art at the age of 15 in the streets of Philadelphia. My brother was a graffiti artist named Maz. Wanting to do everything my brother did, I began to draw and from this experience I learned color theory, perspective, and line quality. Most of all I started seeing the ghetto I lived in as walls for canvases of expression. My ceramics are intended to be a biographical narrative that tells the many stories of my life. The fluidity of throwing a pot reminds me of the arm gesture used to tag a wall.” – Roberto Lugo
