Chaz Bojorquez “End of the World” @ Plaza De La Raza/Boathouse Gallery

While hindsight reveals that in fact the Mayan prophecy predicting doomsday was incorrect, Chaz Bojorquez presented a fitting gallery show before individuals were able to breathe a sigh of relief. Titled “End of the World,” the Plaza De La Raza/Boathouse Gallery in Los Angeles served as the stage for Bojorquez’s signature works/lettering that draws strength and inspiration from East LA. As the recap indicates, a number of new depictions of Chicano-style imagery were presented on canvas as well as on skateboard decks – thus creating a seamless transition from street level to gallery setting. In speaking about the exhibition Bojorquez commented, “This body of new artwork is a representation of the passing of the old world, expressing the emergence of change, a new world united through technology, arts and culture.” “End of the World” is free and open to the public and runs through January 31, 2013.
