I was raised in Los Angeles as a mixed Filipinx-American by my grandparents who immigrated from the Philippines and my first-generation Filipinx-American mother.
This painting is part of my "Love letter Los Angeles" series and pairs with my other painting "Grandpa". I wanted to share part of my childhood. One of my favorite activities as a kid was going to the Filipinx grocery store with my grandparents. And once I learned how to drive my grandparents asked me to drive them to Seafood city weekly until they passed.
