ABOUT THIS ART

Due to sizing, this run does not include a framing option.

Note: This RUN contains (1) Somos Locos AP + (1) Tres Placas AP. Each is pulled from it's respective edition.

"Each print is unique and both come from a different experience of canvas painting and murals. The origins of each print is different. They represent two styles, color and black and white done twenty years apart.  Three Tags print was originally from the mural I painted that took me 4 days to paint at the historical Art In The Streets show at MOCA Los Angeles in 2011. We had a huge response from the public to reproduce the image as a print and it was published by Modern Multiples Publishing. This print represents three lettering styles of mine creating a layer of five decades as a graffiti writer.

Locos was a large painting done in 1987 in black and white that took me almost a year to complete. We decided to add the red to the print working better as a graphic image. The lettering speaks about my community of Highland Park, L.A. “We are the Locos (crazies) of Ave 43, Chaz Ese and Blades”. Today both the painting and print are in the permanent collection of the Laguna Museum of Art, Laguna Beach, California. It was an edition of 120 and later put into storage, but here we have the few remaining for sale, this will be the last release." - Chaz Bojorquez

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Chaz Bojorquez believes that true self-expression comes from the soul. At an early age, in the 1950’s he experienced the graffiti tradition of the East Los Angeles Mexican-Americans. Los Angeles ‘Cholo’ style graffiti was dictated by an honored code of writing. Allegiance to that code of traditional writing brought you respect. In 1968, out of high school with a liberal arts/mathematics diploma, and one year of state college, Chaz enrolled into Chouinard art school (known today as Cal Arts). He also studied Asian calligraphy from Master Yun Chung Chiang (Master Chiang studied under Pu Ju, brother of the last Emperor of China). From all of these experiences, in 1969 he combined the tradition and honor from Cholo gang graffiti and the educational knowledge from art school, and with the spiritual skills of Asian calligraphy. Chaz was one of the first graffiti writers from Los Angeles, with his own style. After more than a decade of tagging in the streets in the 1970’s and early 1980’s, came a deeper need to understand, why do we do graffiti? In 1975 Italian photographer Gusmano Cesaretti interviewed Chaz for Street Writers, a transcribed audio tour of East Los Angeles graffiti in the early 1970’s. A pioneer book in the Chicano and Graffiti culture.
