To date, he has aided in the creation of over a hundred pieces of public art and has raised over 40K for non-profits, charities, and art organizations.
His personal art is grounded in humor and pop culture, usually depicting a commentary on his Chicano roots or the zeitgeist of the moment. Known for its clean lines and brilliant use of color, Shek Vega has become one of Texas’ most sought-after muralists and artists gaining him elite clientele and collectors from around the world.
