Figueroa Street Ocean Boulevard

Irreverent and Imperfect—Just Like Me

Patricia Bonilla

This painting is irreverent and imperfect—just like me. I was born in El Salvador and grew up in Paris and L.A. I was an only child, and I communicated through my art. The train is a fascinating world. I love languages and being around people who are from somewhere else.
