“Mi trabajo creativo brota de un esfuerzo consciente de comunicarme
con el espectador. Esta conciencia me inspira a investigar realidades
que me propongo explorar de la manera más objetiva posible.
Un tema que emerge consistentemente de mi trabajo deriva
de mi estudio personal. Me doy cuenta de que lucho con entusiasmo,
con la esperanza, como la visión de una sociedad más justa y humana”.

Rafael Escamilla nació en La Libertad, El Salvador. Comenzó estudios en dibujo arquitectónico en la Universidad Nacional de El Salvador. A comienzos de la década de 1980, Escamilla huyó a Oaxaca, México, empujado por la Guerra Civil y las turbulencias sociales y económicas.
Durante varios años, mientras recorría primero Guatemala y luego el sur de México buscando un refugio, Escamilla pudo percibir de manera intuitiva y luego interiorizar los nuevos paisajes, colores y tradiciones artísticas indígenas. Los tonos tropicales de su patria aún viven en él. A mediados de los 80 llegó a Los Ángeles, en donde se vio inmediatamente involucrado en la comunidad de refugiados centroamericanos.
En su obra, la memoria visual juega un importante papel como elemento prevalente. Sus epifanías artísticas del exilio se constituyeron en un estilo único e identificable de pintar, tanto en sus murales como, y especialmente, en sus lienzos, grandes y pequeños. Su trabajo Esperando el cambio (acrílico sobre tela, 1988) fue elegido para participar en una exhibición durante los Juegos Olímpicos de Seúl, Corea del Sur, en 1988. Su obra ilustró varias portadas de revistas. Por ejemplo, “Claudia” (1987) apareció en la tapa de America 2001 aquel mismo año. “Estatua de la Libertad, en la portada de Los Latinos, también en 1987.
Varios de sus murales constituyen obras de arte sobresalientes: Paz, amistad y felicidad en nuestro mundo (1988-1989), en la escuela primaria Hobart de Koreatown, Los Ángeles, fue trasfondo de debates públicos inmediatamente posteriores a las masivas protestas de 1992 en esta ciudad, así como en anuncios de servicio público y comerciales en la misma época. Misiones de California (2001), un mural de 60 metros de longitud en la esquina de la calle Fletcher y la avenida Larga, en el barrio de Atwater, relata historias sobre las vidas de jóvenes y ancianos en los barrios residenciales. Sus paisajes urbanos de Los Ángeles contienen las supercarreteras como las arterias de la vida urbana y mediante formas orgánicas transmiten una esencia de modernidad y un colorido y vibrante concepto de la vida.
Rafael Escamilla trabaja con ciertos patrones capaces de evocar sus preocupaciones estéticas. Basado en esas conversaciones, halla más detalles en la literatura, para formular y experimentar el desarrollo de estas bases que finalmente desenbocarán en murales y lienzos en residencias privadas y lugares de trabajo desde Laguna Beach y Long Beach hasta Santa Mónica y Beverly Hills.
Escamilla  es cofundador del Grupo de Artistas Salvadoreños (GAS), en 1996, para con esa unión facilitar el acceso a los artistas salvadoreños en Los Ángeles.
Varias de las obras de Escamilla se encuentran en colecciones privadas. Ha participado en exhibiciones (invitado como artista  en Latin America Graphic Action) en el Museo de Arte Latinoamericano (MOLA), en Long Beach, y en galerías de arte en Centroamérica, México, Rusia, Norteamérica y Europa.

Rafael Escamilla: from La Libertad to Los Angeles

“My creative work comes from a conscious effort
to communicate with the viewer. This consciousness inspires to investigate realties that I commit myself to explore as objectively as possible.
One consistent theme that emerges from my work
stems from my personal research.
I find that I struggle enthusiastically with hope
as a vision for a more just and humane society”.

Rafael Escamilla was born in La Libertad, El Salvador. He began studies in architectural drawing at the National University in San Salvador. In the early 1980’s, Escamilla fled to Oaxaca, Mexico, due to the Salvadoran Civil War and its dire economic consequences.

As he sought refuge first in Guatemala and then in southern Mexico, Escamilla appreciated intuitively and internalized enthusiastically the new landscapes, colors, and indigenous artistic traditions over several years. The tropical colors of his homeland still live within him. By the mid-1980’s, he made his way to Los Angeles, where he was involved immediately in the Central American refugee community.

Visual memory becomes quite important as an element in his work. His artistic epiphanies in exile serve him well as his in a identifiably unique style of painting, both in his murals, but especially in his canvases large and small. His work “Waiting for a Change”, (acrylic on canvas, 1988) was selected for an exhibition during the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, Korea.  His work has graced the covers of several magazines.  “Claudia” (1987) appeared on the cover of America 2001 in 1987. “Statue of Liberty” (1987) came out on the cover of Los Latinos in 1987. Several of his Los Angeles murals are outstanding works of art: “Peace, Friendship and Happiness in Our World” (1988–1989) at Hobart Elementary School in Korea town, with its unforgettable multicultural images of actual school children, stood as the backdrop of public discussions immediately following the 1992 Los Angeles riots, in public service announcements and in commercials during this same time period.  “Missions of California,”(2001) a two-hundred foot long mural located at the corner of Fletcher Street and Larga Avenue in Atwater, tells the stories that inform the lives of older and younger people in the residential neighborhood. His
urban landscapes of Los Angeles include freeways as the veins of city life, and convey through organic forms modernity and a vibrantly colorful vision of life.

Rafael Escamilla works with patrons to evoke their aesthetic concerns. Based on those conversations, Escamilla then looks into are books and literature, where he formulates and experiments to develop visions for his very diverse clients’ approval, as he executes murals and canvases for private homes and work places from Laguna Beach and Long Beach to Santa Monica and Beverly Hills.

Escamilla co-founded Grupo de Artistas Salvadoreños in 1996 as a means of bringing together and exhibiting Salvadoran visual artists in Los Angeles.  Many of Escamilla’s paintings are housed in private collections.  He has exhibited in the Museum of Latin American Art (MOLA) in Long Beach, California, and in art galleries throughout Central America, Mexico, Russia, North America, and Europe.
