Chaz Bojorquez
Los Angeles, California
Growing up, he was exposed to the uses, values and craft of East Los Angeles graffiti lettering styles (known as placas) a tradition since WWII. By the end of 1969, he had created a tag symbol that represented him and the streets – a stylized skull called “Senor Suerte”(Mr. Luck), which has become a well‐known street image of protection from death. Bojorquez is acknowledged as a pioneer and “Godfather” of East Los Angeles “cholo” style graffiti for more than 40 years.

Bojorquez is represented in numerous permanent museum collections includes The Smithsonian Institute, National Museum of American Art, LACMA, MOCA and Laguna Art Museum. Bojorquez exhibits and lectures internationally, and performs “live” art performance demonstrating his unique letter styles and pursuing commercial/cultural assignments.
