Barrio Logan gets a bit of Dr. Lakra

dr-lakra-mural-barrio-logan Oaxaca based artist and tattooist Dr. Lakra just got into town for tomorrow's opening at MCASD. He's painting into the night on the West wall of the Miriello Grafico building at the edge of the infamous Barrio Logan neighborhood. Some of you might recall the art show we held at this building a couple years ago.

Barrio Logan is an appropriate location for the artist with its rich tradition in Latin American street art including Chicano Park, one of the most densely concentrated areas of murals in the entire country and the site of a crucial show of civil disobedience by the local community.

Dr. Lakra was a very nice, soft spoken dude. With our studio just around the corner from "The Logan" building, we couldn't be happier having his art so close. The full shot below shows what's left to paint tonight, and apparently he'll keep painting toward the right (if he has time).
