How has being a Chicano artist and the local Chicano art movement influenced your work?
VOLTS: My Hispanic culture and heritage have had a huge impact on my art. The history of the Chicano art movement led me to incorporate skulls in my pieces. In my culture, we respect and honor the dead. I keep the spirit of the dead alive through the use of skulls throughout my artwork.
