Enthralled with the underground art scene at a young age, Isaac Pelayo immersed himself in a combination of hyperrealism and street art. Inspired by the works of RETNA and Shepard Fairey, Pelayo mastered the technique of positioning two contrasting items together beautifully creating, what he calls, “Street Baroque.”
Isaac states, “Street Baroque explores innocence and influence, unveiling the depths of my personality and interests. Growing up I was most inspired by the Renaissance and Baroque Periods, and the Street Art Movement--studying the first and observing the second. I’ve long been drawn to the combination of new and old, the juxtaposition of two things that don’t inherently belong together. With this collaboration between the parts of me that are poetic and joyful and the parts of me that are rebellious, and carefree, I know that I am doing what I’m supposed to do.
