Pedro Urena

Artist/Photographer/Social Media Manager
Fresno, CA
Hello! My name is Pedro Urena, founder of GIFT PIC. Artist, maker, photographer, and entrepreneur. I have photographed the Central Valley and Bay Area for five years and I sell my work at small business in California. I also started and manage social media community Instagram accounts @VisitFresnoCity & @VisitOaklandCity. I started the accounts to give back to the community through photography and I support small businesses and artists.

In 2018, I was awarded the CALI (California Arts Leaders Investment) grant from The Center for Cultural Innovation to continue my professional development education in photography. I was selected to attend Unique Markets LA business bootcamp in Boston, and I was a nominee for 20 On The Rise, a group of individuals who are making waves and raising the tide, rocking their respective industries through hard work and creativity. In 2019, I was awarded the Quick Grant from The Center for Cultural Innovation to attend Art World Los Angeles Conference.
