Chaka, long-lost L.A. tagger-artist, to have first legit art show on April 25th
Tag! After more than a decade out of the limelight he enjoyed as L.A.’s most prolific and most wanted (by the police) graffiti artist, Daniel Ramos, better known by his nom de can, Chaka, will have a chance to be “it” again.
Now in his mid-30s and living in Bakersfield, Ramos (left, in a 1994 photo) is scheduled to reemerge April 25 — not to re-spray his block-lettered signature on such past targets as the Golden Gate Bridge, the walls of Disneyland and untold L.A. freeway signs and overpasses, but to mount his first solo art show. Dubbed “Resurrection,” it will be on view at Mid-City Arts, a new gallery that’s an adjunct to 33third, an art supplies shop catering to practitioners of graffiti and other forms of street art.
