As the longest active graffiti writer, Bojorquez, has graced the cityscapes of Los Angeles as well as galleries and art collections with his “Cholo style” graffiti. In the early 80’s the 01 Gallery was one of the first galleries to feature Chaz’s work establishing a 25-year relationship that has featured Chaz’s progression as an urban and fine art painter. From participating in 01 Gallery’s 1985 group show “Western Exterminators” alongside underground art luminaries ‘Big Daddy’ Ed Roth and Robert Williams to curating “Next Step,” an exhibition of rising graffiti artists that included MEAR ONE, MAN ONE, RETNA and others, Chaz has been the pioneer in “Cholo style” graffiti and in Chicano culture.
