His passion for art began after returning home to the vibrant color and vast expanse of the desert sky. His time away gave him a new perspective on the often forgotten west Texas desert. Gabaldon took his newfound inspiration and made it his quest to show others his colorful interpretation of the borderland. Attorney by day and artist by night, Gabaldon quickly rose to local prominence with multiple exhibits across El Paso and features in print and digital media. Today, it is difficult not to find Gabaldon’s work on display across the city. His work has been exhibited in restaurants, art galleries, the El Paso International Airport, Southwest University Ballpark, the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), and even as laptops and water bottles stickers. The bright tones that have become synonymous with Gabaldon’s work illuminate the cross-border culture he attributes as the inspiration behind his painting. He and his wife, Monica Alvillar (CEO, CFO etc., SHE DOES IT ALL!), have now made it their intention to give back to their community through art and their small business. They remain fierce advocates of their hometown of El Paso, its culture, and its people. Visit his website at https://www.gabaldonart.com/
