Jose Venegas

Born in Miami, Florida, but raised in San Diego, Jose became fascinated by graffiti art during his youth growing up in vibrant communities. However, with a lack of places to practice his art safely and legally and no community resources available to cultivate his talent, he turned to illegal vandalism as a way to express his creativity. While riding to work on the trolley one day he noticed a group of youth spray-painting large wooden a-frame walls. The next day he saw even more people creating art in the same yard. The following day he decided to skip work to find out what was going on and immediately started volunteering for Writerz Blok.

In 2003, Jose became Writerz Blok’s Production Manager. He learned graphic design on the job and teaches it as well as screen-printing onsite today. He co-teaches graffiti art history with Sergio through partnerships with local high schools.

Sergio Gonzalez

Born and raised in San Diego, Sergio stumbled upon Writerz Blok in its infancy. While riding home from work on the trolley one day, he witnessed a group of youth with spray paint cans freely painting in a safe space. This event became a life-alerting experience.

Four years and countless volunteer hours later in 2003, Sergio became Writerz Blok’s chief financial manager. He began by learning accounting and inventory skills on the job for both Writerz Blok’s programs and storefront. Today, Sergio also teaches graffiti art and graffiti art history as part of Writerz Blok’s partnerships with local high schools.
