Opening Reception: Saturday, September 16, 2017, 6pm – 10pm

Exhibition Dates: September 16, 2017 – October 28, 2017

Los Angeles, CA — EASTERN PROJECTS Gallery is pleased to present a group

exhibition of contemporary and legendary SoCal artists rooted in the diverse

subcultures of Surf, Skate, Graffiti, Low-Brow, Tattoo, Hot Rod, Lowrider and

Music. Curated by Chaz Bojórquez.

The CALIFORNIA LOCOS original core group of five contemporary and

legendary artists include Chaz Bojórquez, Dave Tourjé, John Van Hamersveld,

Norton Wisdom and Gary Wong. The CALIFORNIA LOCOS represent a living

West Coast lifestyle. For the last five decades, each LOCO has created their own

distinct and recognized style, built out of the kaleidoscope that is the West Coast

experience.

“CALIFORNIA LOCOS: SOCAL ORIGINALS – MASTERS OF STYLE” exhibits

their continued contributions to the West Coast culture by expanding their core

membership to include works by Mister Cartoon, Shepard Fairey, Estevan Oriol,

RETNA, SLICK and Robert Williams. Every art scene is led by an originator, a

style master of his art and trade. These influential Masters are honored in this

show for their life dedication as “true” creators, real pioneers that are now

internationally recognized for their work.

The CALIFORNIA LOCOS have evolved into a movement which reflects the

multicultural fabric of Southern California and it’s subcultures that have resonated

worldwide. In true LOCOS style, opening night will feature a Lowrider by Mister

Cartoon, Hot Rod by Dave Tourjé and a new Dusters California X CALIFORNIA

LOCOS skateboard release. This first of its kind show of SoCal Masters promises

to be a historic classic, opening Saturday, September 16th at Eastern Projects in

LA’s Chinatown.
