Essentials: Chaz Bojorquez

During our recent visit to the domain of legendary artist Chaz Bojorquez for our Spaces series, the celebrated painter laid out a few items that that are a must-have for him in another installment of Essentials. A pioneer behind the Cholo-style graffiti that decorates the streets of Los Angeles, Chaz has expanded his art to advertisement campaigns, exclusive threads, and even the big screen. With retirement nowhere in sight, the California native continues to showcase his work at international art shows and one-man exhibits, becoming the oldest living graffiti artist still creating. With a passport and camera in hand ready to document his worldly travels, the toting of a few street markers may imply there’s still a few streets out there that could use his iconic art.
