Armando Silva
Keynote : Painting, Performance, and Inspiration

I, Armando Silva was born in Sombrerete, Zacatecas, Mexico. My family moved to the Northern Colorado area in search of the American Dream when I was just five. I quickly became familiar with pop culture in America. Everything from Michael Jackson to current cartoons. I submerged myself in the visual and performing arts behind closed doors. As I grew up and became more comfortable with my talents I decided to invest in them and got my BA in Fine Arts from The University of Northern Colorado. Since then, I have used my artistic platform to pursue my passion and purpose. I believe with my artistic powers I have a responsibility within my community to lead, educate and give back. I paint portraits to help tell stories, sometimes in my studio or on stages in front of thousands. As a creative I look for opportunities to present my artwork in order to paint a bigger picture. My intuition is to find the greens in a red rose and the blues in an orange. Every brush stroke has a rhythm and every color has its voice.
