Bio of Jose Araujo
(B.1991 Aguascalientes, Mex)
Currently living and working in Los Angeles, California.
Jose's traditional fine line black & grey and bold traditional tattoo work draws influence from elements of Americana, Chicano art, LA gang writing and prison art from various time periods. His gallery practice pulls from similar resources combing chicano art with traditional American imagery and the use of handwritten typography to help convey various inner-city sentiments. Jose maintains a regular position at Mid Town Tattoo in Los Angeles taking appointments in between raising his family in nearby Mid-City.
