In collaboration with ANGST, Rojelio Cabral is a distinguished artist known for his iconic letter“A.” Inhabiting public space, the spray-painted “A” appeared on freeway columns and throughout the LA cityscape of the 1980s and 90s. 

Receiving his BFA from Art Center College of Design, Rojelio developed a unique artistic style by merging LA and San Gabriel Valley gang graffiti with New York subway graffiti. His site-specific and studio works have lived in New York, Barcelona, and Buenos Aires.

In parallel to his art practice, Rojelio is an award-winning Creative Director in advertising. This commercial position was purposely sought as the flip side of his creative coin and designed to nurture and inform his artmaking. He has created over11,000 drawings, one a day, for 35 years (and counting). 

Rojelio has exhibited in diverse galleries in LA and abroad, contributed to award-winning documentaries, seminal Los Angeles Graffiti publications, and included in prominent exhibitions at MOCA LA and the Pasadena Museum of California Art. He also participated in the Getty Research Institute’s Liber Amicorum for the Rare Books & Manuscripts collection. 

Rojelio is writing his autobiography while continuing his signature Daily A artwork.
