Iz Inocencio Jr. (born in Agana, Guam) is a southern California based artist, known for his mix-media (Halo-Halo) art pieces based on his Philippine heritage and his upbringing as a street artist in Southeast San Diego. His works are painted onto various backgrounds, such as wood or used-canvases found at thrift stores and garage sales. According to the artist, "I like painting over old forgotten works of art in order to give the canvas life, with its original art as the soul of my painting."

Inocencio’s style has been described as a fusion of Expressionism, Art Deco and Graffiti Art, with primary influences like Vincent Van Gogh, Fernando Amorsolo, Alfonse Mucha, and his community.

After graduating from Morse High School in 1993, Inocencio attended Southwestern College and transferred to SDSU. He graduated in 2000 with an Elementary Teaching Credential and currently works as a full time artist and child educator in the Chula Vista Elementary School District.
