Greetings DirtyTroops!
“I’m honoured to be part of this special exhibition ‘Los Four Meets Los 40’ curated by Gregorio Escalante Gallery, La Bodega Gallery and Zach de la Rocha. It’s not often I paint my iconic smoking christ girl figure but I felt she was a perfect fit for this special exhibition. The piece holds a lot of raw emotion, detail, depth and layers, using charcoal, ink, acrylic, gold leaf paint and crackle age varnish to complete the piece which really brought her to life.”

In 1969, a group of Mexican-American artists – Frank Romero, Carlos Almaraz, Roberto de la Rocha and Gilbert “Magu” Lujan – became the art collective known as Los Four. They went on to participate in a ground-breaking LACMA exhibition in 1974.(Immediately after the LACMA exhibition, Judithe Hernández joined and made the collective a party of five.) The dedication of Los Four ushered in a new era for Mexican-American artists as they raised an intellectual vanguard and furthered the visibility of the Chicano community.This exhibition aims to pay tribute to the original four while featuring forty additional artists working in a similar vein. We invite you to witness today’s dynamic, contemporary and stimulating art, inspired by the direction of Los Four.

Los Four Meets Los 40 Exhibition: April 1 – 11, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 1, 2017 From 5 – 10 PM
Location: La Bodega Gallery
