Chicano Park 2011

There was no other place I would have rather been this weekend than at Chicano Park in Logan Heights San Diego California. This year it was packed full with some of the nicest lowriders and a lot of Raza...



Some homeboys party to hard...

Two girls three wheelin.. As one of my friends said, "That's Sexy!"

After the show we cruised over to the Tribal warehouse and Cabrones MC Party with Cisneros & Johnny.

I gave Johnny a purple nurple, he liked it.

Salud..

If you like low riders and never been to Chicano Park Day kick your self.. Best Low Rider show!

Hot Wheelin'

Hot Wheels is where it starts..
Lil Diego plays with Hot Wheels as much as we let him..



His sister can play for them for a couple of minutes before getting bored..

but she loves the camera.

Diego showed me how he puts the 'troka' on top of the other one and makes them spin.

Chuca wants in on the action too..

I hope more kids would play with Hot Wheels than their ipods, ipads, gameboys... etc.

Art in the Streets - Numero 2

A few more shots from Art in the Streets at MOCA in LA.

Mr. Cartoon's Ice Cream truck..

West Coast!











Luckily I got there bright and early for opening day (to the public) and didn't have to wait long to get in. This show had all sorts of people in the short line I was in. Artists, Photographers, Hipsters, Moms, Dads, Hip Hop Heads, Nerds, Bros, Cholos and even Minor Celebrities...

I think the MOCA did a really good job in representing 'Street Art' (I think they missed a few artists that should've been represented.. Seen? Giant? But that's just my opnion) I also did think it was a little weird having to pay to see 'Street Art' and even weirder to see it guarded so heavily by security guards. I mean these security guards were everywhere making sure people didn't get too close.

The dog should've pissed on him.

"exit throught the gift shop?" Kind of ironic if you ask me. (Yes right in front is another security guard)

When I went to take a piss I was surprised and kind of let down that the restrooms hadn't been tagged up.. I mean its a exhibit about graffiti & street art....

Art In The Streets

Had the pleasure of going to the MOCA in Los Angeles for the opening day of "Art In The Streets" exhibit.

Fuckin dope art on display!

Here are some of my favorites...
Mr. Cartoon's 39 Master Deluxe with graffiti in the background was my favorite display.

More of Mr. Cartoon's work. Homeboy gets down!

Risk! One of the best to ever do it!

Banksy... Some of his stuff I could care less about but this poece was brilliant.

I'm a fan of the old school! If you've never heard of Lee or Lady Pink.. you better ask somebody!

Chaz Boujorquez.. So detailed!

Dope!

Another one by Risk (right outside)

If you're a fan of graffiti you need to make it down to the MOCA while this exhibit is up. There's some great stuff (and of course a few that are not so great)

I didn't expect so much security... More on that and more photos later...

CHUCA!




Meet my dog Chuca.
She's an 8 month old Boxer. She's hyper, energetic, sometimes a hand full but always a sympathetic soul.
