Salinas painter Liam Da Leo uses graffiti themes, bold colors, and layered textures to unite disparate influences, bringing a street-smart, irreverent attitude to the Monterey County art scene. "Respect Through Sacrifice," a modern, edgy exhibition at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas, marks Da Leo as an artist to watch. * * * This multimedia presentation was a top three winner in the National Press Photographers Association's monthly competition.
