My name is Victoria Ayala, I am from Watts, California. I earned my B.A. in Art Practice from U.C. Berkeley (2014) and recently moved back home to Los Angeles from my 8-and-a-half-year stay in the Bay Area (Berkeley / Oakland,CA). I am the Artist Liaison for Emergent Art Space.  

As an artist I have always sought to capture the raw essence of my subject matter. Whether it be the soul, charisma, personality, energy or emotion of someone or something, I seek to make these intangible characteristics visible through emphasized features, color scheme, and echoed lines.
