GODFATHER of
West Coast Graffiti

CHAZ BOJORQUEZ
 

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.
