    Artists – River Hawkins

    River Hawkins

    I’m supposed to write something about myself in this section, but to be honest I don’t know myself that well.  I mean I talk to myself, but I wouldn’t say we’re close.

    Here’s what I’ve ascertained in my travels with me so far.  

    My name is River Running Free Hawkins. I did not make that up. My parents actually named me that. I’m not some hippie named Daryl who prefers you call him Rain Water because he thinks it makes him more interesting. It doesn’t, Daryl.

    I came into this world through California. I don’t take a lot of things too seriously. My art usually expresses that fact pretty well.  

    I’m one of the owners of The Bebedero, I run the bar program and I curate the art on the walls. I also painted the mural, and the bathrooms.

    If you would like to see more of my art you can check out my website or my Facebook page.  

    If you are interested in purchasing any of the art on the walls at The Bebedero or if you are an artist who would like to hang your art up on the walls at The Bebedero you can contact me at

    That’s it. Drink Mezcal, do art.
