1.Your Name? Carlos Avalos
2.Where are You From, has it influenced you at all? I’m from Los Angeles, South Central to be exact. Being from where I’m from is the biggest influence. Growing around this atmosphere made me realize I don’t want to end up being like everyone else in my neighborhood. While they where gang banging I was learning how to do stuff on a computer.
3.What Do you do? Junior Web Developer & Marketing for Beans & Croydon, Hat production for Quintin Co. , Student
4.How do you do it? A lot of well managed time. Balancing school, work, and more work is the hardest thing to do but I try and mange.
5.Who do you do it with (can be your,”associates,homies,etc”, if any yourself if none)? I do it alone & with a collective of people I work with.
6.What does your art mean to you and what message would you like to get across to your viewer? What I do isn’t per say “art” in its common definition but its art in its own way. When I finish a website or finish a cap for a company I know I can sit back and say “yeah I did that” and know someone else is appreciating it, so in this case we can call it art.
7.Anything special happen in the last year to you(brand etc.)? Everything is special. The good, the bad, they where all a lesson in disguise.
8.How do you feel about being where you at your age? Honestly, I just turned 20 two days ago and I know that for being my age and doing what I’m doing is a big deal. I’ve accomplished a lot and I have a lot more to go.
9.Have some of your dreams come true yet? Yes & No.
Thannnks for the time, anything else you want to speak upon? I just want to say that although I may not be some one that everyone knows or probably will I want them to watch what I do. As Anwar would say I want them to watch the “wave” because everyday for me is a “waveasode”. HA! Follow me on twitter @SolexLife and check out my blog www.photos.solexlife.com
