You Are Cordially Invited to  Latchkey Brewing Company, located in the Historical Mission Brewery Plaza, for an opening reception.

Mario Torero’s lifelong dedication to both Chicano and ancient indigenous cultures is rooted in every aspect of the post-modern metropolis in transition. Torero’s border town attitude of survival through transition, sustainability and adaptation are very much alive in the colors of his paintings and murals. 

No more so than in the eyes of his portraits. All of his subjects, Picasso, Cesar Chavez, Che, Prince or Jesus share an intensity in their stare that gives the viewer the uncanny feeling that they are being intensely scrutinized as they view the portrait.

San Diego artist Torero has dedicated his life to being an Artivista, an artist of the people, for the people. Latchkey Brewing Company is presenting a rare exhibition of Torero’s canvas portraitures and symbolic magic realist paintings. A unique window into a profoundly engaged artist’s mind. 
 You are invited to the opening launch at which the artist will give a short talk to the attendees on each of his paintings. His original work will be for sale on site as priced well as his accompanying art prints and the exclusive exhibition poster. With special guests Yokohama artist, Rocco Satoshi and Tijuana artist, Enrique Chiu.
