“There is no border when it comes to Mexican-American culture.”
Those are the words of famed Mexican artist Roberto Gil de Montes. Gil de Montes is a long time friend and mentor to Los Angeles based artist Roberto Munguia.
I’ve known Roberto Munguia for over 20 years, literally since he was youngster. He has been a good friend of my foundation, Adventures in Life, donating numerous works of art to help our efforts in Mexico.
He is also the founder of Enchilado, from where I get all of my Lucha Libre shirts.
This weekend in Los Angeles, Roberto is part of The Underground Chocolate and Art Show, being held at the perfectly named KGB Studios. If you are in the area, check it out. In addition to the art, there will be lots of free chocolate, music and plenty of street food from Lily’s Little Kitchen.
After all, what better way to spend a Friday or Saturday night than with a group of super creative people, enjoying great music, free chocolate and some wonderful Los Angeles street food?
