This week we chatted with Adolfo J Lara, an artist, director, and photographer based in Los Angeles. In the latest installment of our interview series, Adolfo discusses his affinity towards street art, his various sources of inspiration, and some advice for aspiring street artists.

Twenty Two: Let’s start with the basics. Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

Adolfo: My name is Adolfo. I’m 23, male, 5’11” (probably 6′ soon — I’m drinking a lot of milk), Mexican, filmmaker, artist, photographer, non-heartthrob, Los Angeles.

Twenty Two: What inspired you to get involved with street art as opposed to more traditional genres?

Adolfo: I like street art/graffiti because it allows me to put my work right in people’s faces, instead of waiting for them to visit my website or whatever. I can do something really cool in my sketchbook and no one will see it, but I can take that same thing and put it on a busy intersection and hundreds of people will see it.
