Dusters California X California Locos

 

Chaz Bojórquez, Dave Tourjé, John Van Hamersveld, Norton Wisdom, and Gary Wong —the CALIFORNIA LOCOS—represent 50 years of Los Angeles art, each having been influenced and inspired by the surf, skate, music and barrio culture, as well as formal art practice, that has combined and morphed in Los Angeles from the '60s through today.  Bojórquez, the godfather of Cholo writing, is an artist among artists that leaves an indelible mark in every project he produces.  Van Hamersveld is legendary for designing iconic record album covers for bands like The Rolling Stones and The Beatles as well as the artist behind the design of the 1966 Endless Summer movie poster. The entire lineup of California Locos is full of artists that have all etched their own creativity into this collaboration.
