ANGEL VALENTIN

I was born in Puerto Rico, at the age of eleven, migrated to NY, after high school, I began to draw at a young age, from comic books to portraits of friends. After high school, I joined the military, which I did three years, and then when I was discharged I joined the New York National Guard. During those times, I was still drawing; I went to a military school for visual arts, in 1993 for three months. In 2004 I was sent to Iraq, after I came back in 2005, I was disable and left the military for good with 30 years of service I applied at the, "Art Students League" and I've been there ever since. Today I'm retired, and living in Brooklyn.
