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.

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.
