Born and raised in California, Granillo found early artistic and creative inspiration through his barrio Community with Chicano / Mexican roots to north and southern Mexico. Working with nature influences and also finding interest in sharing the earth with animals that once controlled the surface of the land but have now been driven underground by commercial development. This conflict fascinates him, and frequently is depicted in his work. Granillo’s style/subjects of preference are, abstract, Figurative, cubism ,surrealism, landscapes , and folk.
Granillo is currently working in the San Francisco Bay Area . Using mix media on paper and canvas, dabbeling into the wider pallette of artistic mediums such as printmaking, sculpture, and murals.
