HOMEGIRL PURIKURA II


The second session of Homegirl Purikura was an awesome explosion of cholaness... My homegirl La Evil Rose, Chola y photographer from Highland Park, Califas joined Rio and I on our collaboration...



Homegirl プリクラ is a collaboration between artists Rio Yañez and Mayra Ramirez. It is the next phase of Yañez' art series examining the relationship between Japanese youth emulating Cholo and Chola culture and their counterparts in the United States. Homegirl Purikura reverses the appropriation of visual aesthetics and uses Japanese photobooths (Purikura) to create portraits of Cholas. The use of Purikura enables Yañez and Ramirez to create a hybrid visual presentation of portraits decorated in Chola cultural references but using uniquely Japanese visual tools to do so.

SWEET CANDY



Alex Valdez from Los Boulevardos Car Club is a master at what he does. He gives lowriders new life with his amazing, intricate, and beautiful paint jobs... Watcha!!!
