Last week, Rio — of birthday activity page and Valentine card fame — asked if it would be okay to display the Supa Fresh portrait (middle, above) in an art show. Even though the portrait is Rio’s work, he was still cool enough to check if it was okay to use my image. I quickly replied, “cool! You have my blessing.”
I’ll have to make a trip to San Jose to see the show before it closes on October 25th. Who wants to tag along?
Details about the show and Rio’s announcement below:
I’m very excited to let you all know that the latest and greatest exhibit to feature my work is opening this Friday at MACLA in San Jose, California. I’ll be exhibiting alongside some of my favorite artists including Carolyn Castaño and Shizu Saldamando in a show called “The Art of Style”.
This is your chance to see and purchase prints of my work including my infamous “I have forgiven Guadalupe” Morrissey print, “Hecho en Compton” featuring Eazy-E, and two prints from my Ghetto Frida series.
Unfortunately the MACLA website has not been updated and there has been very little publicity for the show so please help spread the word. I look forward to seeing you all there!
