Chaz Bojorquez is a living legend, the ‘Godfather’ of ‘Cholo’ graffiti. He perfected his own unique script style based on Old English combined with his studies of Asian calligraphy under Master Chung Yun Chang, who had learned calligraphy from the brother of the last emperor of China, Emperor Pu Ju. His style gave Los Angeles communities an identity celebrated worldwide till this day. I had the opportunity to talk to him at Crewest recently and was honored to have him write ABCNT in his signature style.

Here’s an interview he did not too long ago; it’s a few pages deep with great insight. I highly recommend his book for your personal library.
