Homeboy Industries x Art x exhibit

Allow me to introduce myself, I am one of the new ASCTD krewmembers, and for now on i will be posting photos of places to eat, see, and random street pix. Today I ate breakfast at homegirls cafe with no intentions of talking about it, I just simply enjoy their food. Their Chilaquiles always hits the spot for breakfast. With some red sauce (they also have green sauce), a cup of coffee and a side of bacon of course! (sorry no pix of my delicious food, cause I ate it before i got the chance to take a pix of it.) 


Things changed when I noticed the art displayed on their walls at the Cafe, and I couldnt help it but to take out the camera and start shooting. So I went to ask for formal permission to take pix and the event manager told me all about tomorrow's exhibit. She graciously gave me permission to show you guys one of the paintings that will be on display tomorrow. For more info on the subject, check them out on FB. Homeboy Industries 

Two men have found an artistic way to express themselves with Homeboy Industries' Exit Wounds Project, a workshop and art collaboration led by painter Nancy Baker Cahill.

So as promised heres one of the pics.

Artist: Fabian Debora.

'You need to look beneath the surface. There's a lot of meaning in all the layers.'--
