Chicano Artist and Homeboy Art Academy’s Fabian Debora

I Paint for Those in My Community, for the Voiceless

Fabian Debora is a Chicano artist based out of Boyle Heights and the co-founder and executive director of Homeboy Art Academy. Before speaking at the Zócalo event “How Do We Begin Again?,” held at the ASU California Center at the Herald Examiner in downtown L.A., he spoke in the green room about his best advice for emerging artists, how he found his own voice, and why it took going to Rome to become friends with L.A. author Luis Rodriguez.
