Gallery Azul provides opportunities to emerging, working artists of various cultural backgrounds. We mindfully create group art exhibitions that emphasize sociocultural issues. We believe, that as artists, we have the power and obligation to bring awareness, promote discussion and critical thinking about the various sociocultural issues that impact us all. In doing this we hope to cause a ripple effect in our community and hopefully the world.
Gallery Azul is committed to finding high quality, collectible, cultural, and conceptual art to add to the San Pedro Art scene. If you are looking for culture, color, and movement this is the gallery for you.

Latinx with Plants first bloomed March 23rd, 2019 out of admiration for the community @blackwithplants was cultivating and a desire to contribute towards the celebration of people of color in the plant world. Thank you to D’Real Graham for paving the way, opening the door, and welcoming us in.
While @latinxwithplants was mostly dedicated to sharing fun memes, plant inspo, and plant parent goals it grew to something we never could have imagined.
As a young girl, Gabriela Hernandez would watch in complete wonder while her beloved grandmother applied makeup as part of her daily beauty ritual. From the swipe of a bold lip color to the dusting of rouge on a cheek, Gabriela loved how this small moment connected art to beauty, and grandmother to granddaughter.
After immigrating from Buenos Aires to the United States, Gabriela’s fascination for cosmetics grew into passion followed by expertise. She became a historian of makeup through the decades, studying photography and art direction before publishing the book, Classic Beauty: The History of Makeup, and then founding Bésame Cosmetics.
Embracing proven beauty tools, trends, and techniques of eras past, Gabriela has created a carefully curated line of cosmetic essentials – inspired by style icons both famous and familial. Just like watching her grandmother apply makeup decades ago, Bésame offers authentic connection across generations, so you can build looks that transcend time.
