Chaz Bojórquez 50 Years of West Coast Graffiti


Limited Edition of 300 - Individually Signed and Numbered by Artist

 

A GLIPSE INTO THE ORIGINAL - Hardcover Artist book

Legendary artist Chaz Bojórquez the Godfather of Graffiti. In this stunning monograph, Bojórquez's artistic progression is revealed one decade at a time, beginning in the 1970's. His early interest in Los Angeles's native 'Cholo' style graffiti writing was later tempered by his work in Asian Calligraphy and his studies at Chouinard Art Institute. As the book unfolds through the decades, the diversity and range of Bojórquez's work becomes evident: street graffiti, paintings, logos, type intensive graphic design work and forays into cinema and fashion are all executed to the highest level. The illustrations are accompanied by fascinating stories about how Chaz started as an artist and includes an in-depth interview with Amanda Erlanson. Los Angeles art critic Peter Frank also contributes an essay in the telling of this artist's fascinating life story.
