3 min read


Do you bear in mind your first time actually experiencing a gaggle celebration of automobiles—household vacation, wedding ceremony, quinceanera, or perhaps a funeral? What stood out to you?

Alejandro Perez: I can’t actually bear in mind my first time experiencing that, however for positive it should have been at a lowrider automotive present occasion with my dad after I was round 4 or 5 years previous. On the time, my dad was within the Tremendous Naturals Automobile Membership and my brother and I might go together with him to automotive reveals. What stood out to me had been all the intense colours, shiny chrome, wire wheels, loopy customized inside, and loopy paint jobs with the airbrushed murals. And, after all, the automobiles with the hydraulics, I beloved watching the hopping contests. 


Vicente Perez: Yeah, I can’t bear in mind the primary time precisely, however for positive it was a automotive present with our dad. In fact, the primary issues I seen had been the wire wheels and hydraulics. However the primary factor that I’ve at all times beloved was the murals. Often, a automotive would have a sick-ass mural on the trunk of the automotive. Most of them are monochrome and the photographs would go together with the theme of the automotive, Lowriders at all times have a theme. The music is on, and there’s the meals too, so it simply turns into a vibe.


What had been a lot of the automobiles at the moment? Was there a sure type or make? I’m pondering Chevy. How did they develop, like, had been there at all times sweet paint jobs and customized upholstery? How has that modified?

Rising up, on the automotive reveals we might largely see ’60s Impalas, Bombs, and ’80s G-Bodys. The types have not actually modified a lot, so far as we will inform. There have at all times been completely different ranges as to how far or how loopy you need to customise your automotive. However there’s been some new issues, like engraving patterns into the chrome, or LED headlights, additionally LEDs within the undercarriage and engine bay. There’s at all times new improvements that lowrider homeowners preserve developing with, particularly for the loopy present automobiles. 


What was highschool like? Was there a automotive scene? Had been you in any respect into artwork by that point?

AP: Excessive Faculty was alright. I did not actually do something loopy, simply frolicked with associates throughout lunch, frolicked with my bro after college, and watched tv. There wasn’t actually a automotive scene at the highschool. On the time, I wasn’t actually into artwork, primarily as a result of I didn’t know a lot about it. All I knew was that I appreciated to attract quite a bit. On the time, I solely actually knew about Pop Artwork, so I used to be actually into Andy Warhol and Roy Liechtenstein. I began portray in highschool, nevertheless it wasn’t till AP Artwork class in my senior 12 months that I started to take it extra significantly. 


VP: I don’t bear in mind there being a automotive scene, however possibly that is as a result of we did not have a automotive again then. All by means of and after college, I might at all times be drawing in my notebooks. I did not actually like college, actually, solely the artwork lessons. I do not bear in mind at what age, however we discovered an artwork journal that I actually appreciated, Lowrider Arte. It was crammed with Chicano artwork, and you can submit your drawings. I by no means did, however I at all times wished to. The Lowrider murals and the journal positively influenced me to make the work that I make immediately.
