Since January 2014, 10 inspiring artists were selected to be part of a large public art project entitled Red Bull Latagráfica and were invited to paint a mural, with walls throughout Los Angeles as their canvas, based on the inspiration “puedes,” which translates to “you can.” Whether it means ambition and hustle, overcoming a struggle or hope, artists will answer the question, “What does ‘puedes’ mean to you?” through their completed artwork. The artists selected to be part of this project were: Chris Sanchez, Ernesto Yerena Montejano, Fernando Barragan, Germs, Man One, The Date Farmers, Vyal, Wenceslao Quiroz and Frank Romero.This projects purpose is to pay homage to the Los Angeles and Latino art communities through art. On Friday, October 24, we are all invited to attend a closing event which celebrates the completion of this wonderful project and the final mural painted by a Los Angeles Muralist legend Frank Romero and is to be unveiled! This is a very exciting moment. If you are interested in attending this closing event which includes an art installation curated by the 10 Red Bull Latagráfica artists an art, music performances, food, drinks and the unveiling of this new mural, please RSVP your attendance to: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/red-bull-latagrafica-closing-event-tickets-13553808807.
