By Calo Rosa
Calo Rosa was born in San Salvador from a family of artists working in diverse media including Brazilian percussion, graphic design, oil painting, and cake-making. After becoming frustrated with the exclusivity of the San Salvador gallery scene, he began to define his own street art style. His colorful pieces portray the vibrant Latin American culture, and mirror the sounds, roots, and forms of the urban-tropical lifestyle. He now lives and works in Philadelphia.
