Art Meza, a photographer born and raised in Los Angeles, California, captures and incorporates elements of his daily surroundings in the city of Angeles. With features of lowrider culture and his Chicano Soul.
What is "Chicano Soul"? Many things to many people but to Art it's a '51 Chevy Lowrider w/ a metal flaked Mexican Flag painted on it's roof, Homegirls w/ a friendship that'll last decades. It's a Vato Loco w/ a rosary hanging from his rear view mirror.
Orale! That's Chicano Soul.
Aside from his current full feature at Guisados DTLA, individual photos by Art can be seen as a permanent fixture in each of our locations. A major supporter of Guisados for years, he is one of the only artist to have displayed in each of our five locations.
