He who seeks titles, invites his own downfall.
“Besides antagonistic homeless people, there are the expected run-ins with police and hired security. Veteran political street artist ABCNT, whose most recent work depicts a police officer committing hara-kiri, says he had a private guard pull a gun on him in a railyard near the L.A. River.
Another time he was harassed and cuffed by a policeman for wearing a shirt with an anarchist logo. “I had just put some shit up on the freeway, but the shirt was what pissed him off. He said, ‘Are you an anarchist?’ and told me to put my hands behind my back. After searching me, he let me go, but I sort of wished I’d have been arrested for wearing a shirt.”

Lotería is the Spanish word for lottery. The deck is composed of a set of 54 different images, each one in a card. A Mexican game of chance, similar to bingo, Lotería uses images on a deck of cards instead of plain numbers. Every image has a name and an assigned number, but the number is usually ignored.
The origin of lottery can be traced far back in history. The game originated in Italy in the 15th century and was brought to New Spain (Mexico) in 1769. In the beginning, lotería was a hobby of the upper classes, but eventually it became a tradition at Mexican fairs.
