Grandpa


Brianna Mitjans

Filipinx


This painting is part of my "Love letter Los Angeles" series and pairs with my other painting "City Snacks". I wanted to depict important everyday scenes that represent Los Angeles to me. In the wake of Violence again Elderly Asian Americans; I unconsciously felt a strong urge to paint my grandpa. He was an elderly Filipinx American who was tough as nails, sharp as tack, and dressed well. This is the representation I would like to share with the media that ignores Asian Americans.
