Philosophy of Lettering: Chaz Bojorquez
Artist Chaz Bojorquez has been immersed in the graffiti tradition of East Los Angeles Mexican Americans since the 1950s. He has combined graffiti, his formal fine art education, and extensive Asian calligraphy studies, becoming one of the best-known and most original graffiti artists from Los Angeles. Bojorquez will demonstrate how art and culture define his experience as well as his philosophy about the value and execution of letters. This program is presented by the Hammer Student Association (HSA) in collaboration with the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center.
Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.
Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.
