Libre was featured in Bushwick Daily in New York City 

“For me, queer art and being a queer artist comes from an internal drive to move the needle on what is normal to a more inclusive world. Doing provocative, queer art that sometimes is sexual or on the fringes of what’s okay by society’s standards is actively pushing on what is normal in the world we all live in.”

about

Libre is a queer Artist of Apache, Coahuiltecan and Mexican decent who is a Navy Veteran born in Suffolk, Virginia who joined the military straight out of high school where he held a Top Secret security clearance while serving as an IT onboard the Uss Carr during Operation Enduring Freedom and was trained at Blackwater where he was certified as part of the ships tactical VBSS boarding team and was deployed for 6 months to West Africa in 2004

 

After being honorably discharged from the Navy Libre moved to Miami where he was trained as a hairstylist at Paul Mitchell and was a barber for over a decade.

In 2010 Libre moved to Atlanta where he later created a sustainable urban farm located In the historic Grant Park raising Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats, New Zealand rabbits, and chickens. After over a decade as a Barber and Hairstylist he sold his farm and left his successful business and set out on a great adventure with nothing but a backpack and his 5 month old Boykin Spaniel named Riley and flew to Maine to hike the Appalachian trail.

 

Thanks to profits from the sale of Grant Park Urban Farm Libre was blessed with the freedom and opportunity to step away from traditional society and have the time and space to dive deep into a primitive nomadic life ripe with reflection and solitude that would lead to the birth of his art. He knew his life was lacking art and that wherever this journey lead it would ultimately be to a new life supported entirely by art

 

After Summiting Mount Katahdin In Maine and walking all 2,200 miles of the Appalachian Trail back to Georgia he decided to leave a life of solitude in the woods for some time in one of the biggest cities in the world. He spent the months after completing the trail living in Mexico City immersed in the vibrant art and culture of his ancestors. When he left Mexico City he bought a motorcycle and set off on a 10,000 mile cross country adventure on his Triumph Bonneville with just a hammock and his dog visiting many different artists along the way who were already manifesting the things he was seeking and was able to learn something from his encounters with lots of other artists. It wasn’t until living in a van in Maui that he fully decided that his path to a new life as an artist would be to move to Brooklyn and become a Tattoo Artist.

 

Once he had a clear path ahead of him he spent the   months preceding his move to New York City in Europe and the Middle East seeing all the great art of the world and used those inspirations to begin to develop his own artistic style.  After attending Tattoo School in Brooklyn and becoming a Licensed Tattoo Artist in New York City Libre did an apprenticeship with Christian Lord @ Lordbkny in Greenpoint where he was an artist for 2 years. 

 

After coming out of quarantine Libre found himself once again alone in the woods where he spent 2 months living in a tent and hiking 1,000 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from Canada to California with his dog.  He landed in Atlanta where he decided to buy a school bus and convert it into a fully off the grid tiny house and mobile tattoo studio.  He spent 3 months building and raised the roof creating a solar system, plumbed and built out the fully sustainable Skoolie named Frida which he has lived worked and traveled the country  in for the last year.
