This painting attempts to integrate neighborhood icons with a splash of timeless ethereality in action. I also seek to honor the power of family in Tucson's barrios. This piece enlivened some of my own memories growing up with Latino culture in L.A. and I remain a fan of classic lowrider cars to this day.
Renown Tucson author, Patricia Preciado Martin, grew up here. Her many books about Southern Arizona's people, history and culture have inspired me for many years. Barrio Hollywood is also home to Tucson's cherished artist, David Tineo.
