If you have not seen Chaz Bojórquez at the National Museum of Mexican Art, you are missing a wonderful exhibition. Chaz Bojorquez has been acknowledged as the ‘O. G. Godfather’ of East Los Angeles “cholo” style graffiti for close to 40 years, tagging since 1969. His work has been exhibited in Mexico, Spain, Italy, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Hawaii and New York in more than 135 art galleries and 48 museums. His work is collected by many private collectors and museums, including the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C., the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Los Angeles.
Here are some photos I took at the exhibition which runs until June 2013 at the National Museum of Mexican Art.
