Each year, Talks at Google celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month by hosting a series of conversations about Latinx culture, heritage, and history.

This talk, part of our broader series, includes Margaret Garcia, Antonio Pelayo and Manuel Lopez -- all Los Angeles-based Latinx artists.

Margaret Garcia was born in East Los Angeles, where her family's heritage dates back to 1924. She can be recognized for her murals displayed during the 1984 Olympics, and she has been identified as one of 24 artists who greatly impacted LA art, defining Chicano art by creating it. Her recent exhibitions include Chicano Dreams in Bordeaux, France; Musée D'Aquitaine and Transforming Feminism, South Bay Contemporary.

Manuel Lopez was born in East Los Angeles, where much of his work has been shaped by his local roots. He offers a series of landscape paintings developed on location. He has been included in numerous group exhibitions in institutions and museums nationwide, which include 'Friends Do Not Fear' at New Image Art in West Hollywood, as well as 'Juried Art Show' at Vincent Price Art Museum in Los Angeles, to name a few.

Antonio Pelayo was born in Glendale, CA and raised in the Mexican countryside. His inspiration behind his artwork is intended to question the ideologies of home, identity and trust, where he draws on renowned artists like Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Orozco. As an illustrator and "hyperrealist," he has captivated audiences with his traditional celluloid animation techniques. His company, Antonio Pelayo Productions, combines his creative and unique talents as an artist.
