A weekly series on L.A. TACO by artist AJL.
Ryo1 interviews Roberto Del Hoyo and David Russell, co-founders of LA’s groundbreaking Mobile Mural Lab project.
Whats your favorite spot in LA to get some tacos?
Burrito King on Sunset and Alvarado in Echo Park. Their al pastor is my go to taco. I’m also loving Diablo on Sunset despite their tag line. Delicious ‘fusion’ tacos and great beer selection. Might just catch a few of TITS Crew relaxing there at the bar on any given day.
Favorite colors for a quick throw up?
Matt Kemp is having a tough season at the plate, but that hasn’t killed his generous spirit. An SF-based Dodger fan battling a difficult (unnamed) affliction was sitting in the front row this weekend at the Dodgers-Giants game, when his friends told third-base coach Tim Wallach about a special fan sitting nearby. After the game, Matt came over to sign a ball and ended up giving the kid some very special gifts. From the video description:
“Matt Kemp is such a great person. He came over after the game and made one of my best friends night :) he’s fighting a tough battle and this was such a great gift by Matt Kemp ! I’ll never forget this”
Robert Carranza is one of the world’s great audio producers and engineers, and has worked on albums by Ozomatli, The Mars Volta, Taj Mahal, and many more. In this video interview, Ryo1 of Ghetto Dojo sits down with Robert to learn more about his life, career, and his love for the late Manuel Rojas from El Tepeyac restaurant.
This is the final edition of The Skatorialist by the great Reserve Result. This series, which highlights the fashion and style of LA’s skateboarding culture, has been a wonderful part of L.A. Taco and we’re sad to see it conclude. The work both illuminates a piece of our city in a striking documentarian way, while also gifting the viewer a series of beautiful images that stand on their own as works of art. We hope to bring you a collected edition of The Skatorialist images in the form of a limited-edition book later this year. Make sure to check out the archives which are linked below the images at the end of this post to view all 13 editions of the series.
