Born and raised in Mexico, local artist Raul De Lara studies design and studio art at the University of Texas at Austin. He’s won many awards and scholarships for his artwork in the past seven years.

De Lara's piece, "Childhood fire pt. 2" is made out of cardboard and birthday decorations. He used a laser cutter to precisely label each triangle where he had to fold and piece the cardboard together. Photo courtesy of Raul De Lara.

De Lara joins us on “Chit Chat with ChinLin” to talk about his work at Oxbow this past summer, his inspirations, and what he thinks of the notion of “starving artists.”

Coming up on Sept. 27, Experimental Response Cinema will feature works from many Austin-based moving image artists, including De Lara, at Mass Gallery on Calles Street.
