Born in Oceanside, CA, Gabriel moved to New Orleans in 1982. His father is a filipino immigrant who was in the Marine Corps, so he moved to Virginia and Chicago before returning to New Orleans in the early 90's. Gabriel has curated and exhibited in art shows around the city for almost two decades, most recently co-curating the Top Mob: A History of New Orleans Graffiti exhibit at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art.
His art ranges from graphic design to large scale murals, as well as acrylic and mixed media on canvas. He is also proficient with charcoal figure drawings and illustration. Since 2007, he has owned a commercial screen printing and embroidery business in New Orleans. In 2016 he started another company called New Orleans Paint + Design to cater toward LIVE painting events and public and private murals.
His artwork is mixture of portraiture and place, people and the environments that breed them. Often painted in a satirical style, he blends classic techniques with modern mediums and messages to create commentary with subliminal relevance.
