Chaz Bojorquez

An interview with Chaz Bojorquez. His calligraphy is beautiful, I could watch him paint all day. I wish people would make videos like this without cutting away to the talking head and just show the letters being created from beginning to end.

  • LOVED IT!

  • Guilherme Harrison

    I really enjoy seeing an older man that is all into urban arts. Very cool.

  • Jen

    “If the city was a body, graffiti would show you where it hurts” – beautiful.

  • Ralfana

    Always nice to hear a wise artist talking about the concept of his art-style… outstanding!

  • Can anyone point me in the direction of the artist behind the music in the video?

    I’ve been doing graffiti for 20 years and just found out that my real last name is Bojorquez too! Interesting.
