New Belgium is proud to present our collaboration with Northern Colorado artist, Armando Silva on our 8th annual Artist Globe Glass. Armando is a painter, muralist, and performer who uses his artistic superpowers to tell powerful stories, build community, and inspire youth through art.
For this year's glass, Armando created a design inspired by Mexican Folklore that honors his Mexican heritage as well as our two home states Colorado and North Carolina. This custom glass is a limited edition, and is only available in 2020. Grab yours while they last!
Armando Silva is a painter, muralist, and performer who uses his artistic superpowers to tell powerful stories, build community, and inspire youth through art. As a recipient of a Governor's Creative Leadership award from Colorado Creative Industries in 2018, Armando has been celebrated for his collaborations with cities, non-profits, businesses, and educators across the state and beyond.
Armando believes his artistic abilities come with the responsibility to lead, educate, and give back to the community. His artistic practice focuses on compelling portraits that tell personal stories, sometimes created on canvases in his studio, or other times created through live performance in front of thousands. Armando's large-scale mural installations give communities a way to communicate messages that can't always be said in words.
