Step into the visionary world of Gustavo Zermeño Jr. at BEYOND THE STREETS' debut solo exhibition, "What Was, What Is, What Could Be." Through immersive mural-inspired landscapes, Zermeño paints a vibrant narrative of Los Angeles, honoring its landmarks while blending dreams with reality. Each piece offers a snapshot of the city's diverse ecosystems, inviting viewers on a profound journey through LA's heart, narrated by one of its most passionate storytellers.

Artist ( Description ): 

Gustavo Zermeño Jr. mixed his love for community and art by first offering to paint murals on local businesses around his home in Venice, California. Soon his larger-than-life portraits of sports heroes, celebrities and iconic musicians, done in acrylic and aerosol, peered at passersby from walls far beyond his neighborhood. This led to collaborations with the likes of the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Rams, UCLA and Nike, among others, while working with nonprofits and underserved populations to uplift and inspire the next generation of artists. Zermeño has been featured in local and national media and created a social media buzz with his hyper-realistic painted cutouts, left in unlikely places—a practice he loved for its surprise factor. His body of work has grown to include sculptures and stylized portraits on canvas and paper. He continues to be inspired by Los Angeles, its sports culture, music, and the landscape itself.
