El Velorio 2013

I have been showcasing at Antonio Pelayo's Dia De Los Muertos show, El Velorio, since the beginning and it only keeps getting better. He teams up with local artists and organizers and each year they pick a nonprofit organization who will benefit from part of our proceeds.

This year's show was held at Plaza De La Raza. The proceeds were also donated to PDLR so that they can continue to advocate and nurture arts in Lincoln Heights.

Walking in, they transformed their fountain into a huge altar, celebrating the memories of our ancestors.

Got to bump into the homie, Codak. He is busy with his own work but found time to come out and support all his friends that were showcased. In fact, he was in his painting gear.

Below are works from Man One, Asylm, Eye One and Deffer.
Also shown were Pablo Dumas, Erica Friend, Isaac Pelayo and Amenah.

Speaking of Isaac, he's Antonio's son and already we can see that the apple does NOT fall far from the tree. Not even 18 and he's already killing the graphite and is tattooing as well. Look for him.
Like Father, Like Son.
Shout out to this girl, Geissel!

All in all, it is such an amazing event. We were able to fill up that entire art center and there was something for everyone.. face painting, art show, vendors, concert, food vendors, workshops. I can't wait for next year!
