Young artist exhibits at
La Mesa health care library
LA MESA -- The Dr. William C. Herrick Community Health Care Library, a consumer health library at 9001 Wakarusa St. in La Mesa, is now presenting its Winter Art Exhibit showcasing 13 art pieces by Fabian Diaz Luevano of El Cajon.
The exhibit, which runs through the end of March, features a collection of charcoal and pencil figure drawings, a collage of newspaper clippings and a digital drawing. Diaz Luveano’s work has previously appeared at the El Cajon Public Library.
Born in central Mexico in 1991, Diaz Luevano, 26, lived in Tijuana until age 12 and then moved to the United States. He has studied art in Bordeaux, France, and at Grossmont and Cuyamaca colleges. He graduated from Grossmont High School (class of 2009) and earned an honorable mention award in a national art competition. He also graduated with a bachelor’s degree in the history of public policy from the University of California Santa Barbara. He currently works at Cuyamaca College as an English-language tutor and test proctor.
“My goal is to become an illustrator specializing in human anatomy,” said Diaz Luevano. “I’m interested in drawing complicated things, not man-made things, but rather things in nature and life and the human body.”
Admission to the Herrick Community Health Care Library is free. The Winter Art Exhibit is open to the public during regular library hours, which are from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Wednesdays through Fridays, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
