2018 EMERGING ARTIST

Pablo Cruz Ayala

Each year BDAC gives one outstanding high school student from Davis School District the opportunity to showcase and sell their art at Summerfest.  Look for Pablo's booth this year!

"Painting became an outlet for me to express myself in situations where I myself felt I couldn’t express myself any other way. From familial matters to person emotions, art felt like the most telling of these feelings. For the past year I had pushed myself into intensive art studies that made it possible to be able to capture more realistic emotions and settings that otherwise could never have seen the light of day. I'm hoping to further my artistic journey to further benefit myself in the field of art. As well as an example, to my younger sister to further any of her ambitions and to work hard to succeed. I would also like to further experiment and learn more formal qualities of painting and other mediums in college in more formal settings, that when I was beginning in art I did not have accessibility too. I am so grateful from all the support and aid I have received from not only my family but teachers and most respectively Sunny Magee who encouraged and pushed me further than ever before, and for these driving forces led me to where I am in art now."
