Exhibition Title: Novela: Arte y Drama
Novela: Arte y Drama is inspired by the Spanish telenovela, a serieal daytime television show of short duration. Telenovelas often focus on themes of conflict, drama and hyper-emotional situations that mimic real life. In some instances novelas are used to communicate socio-cultural circumstances and messages. Influenced by novelas and punctuated by fleeting anxieties, the work presented in Arte y Drama parallels real life occurrences and via exaggeration, can be experienced as a form of self-parody.

MAS BURROS COSMICOS c/s
Curator/Artist: LA Vatocosmico
My objective in regards to my “Chicano Pop Arte” culture entails in essence a social and political consciousness engaging the mental and spiritual genies. My arte is eccentric satire with a mixture of cosmic fusion. In reality I’m not your typical traditional artist. Some Burros Cosmicos described my visual arte as being hysterical pop avant-garde. I simply stimulated myself into a trance of experimental visualization. This is why I have profundity in dealing with my cosmic Chicano roots.
