Arroyo Seco Tag, 1975
LOS ANGELES ORIGINAL
West Coast Graffiti
From the diamond studded highway of the Arroyo Seco riverbed in the barrio of Highland Park, to the Smithsonian, Chaz Bojórquez has become a living legend as The GodFather of West Coast Graffiti.
A 53 year career mark, Chaz has changed the perception of Cholo graffiti writing into a well respected and influential art form. Bojórquez began his west-coast aesthetic in 1969, using Cholo style graffiti mixed with the disciplined Asian art form of calligraphy. Chaz brought an identity and unique aesthetic to a worldwide community, both as a street artist and a fine artist. Graffiti is a dialogue, and Chaz’s signature style is the language of East L.A. neighborhoods.
