Bi-Lingual Stencil-making workshop w/ Oaxacan Artist Collective

  • West Los Angeles Regional Library (map)

Stencil-making allows for the reproduction of any image onto many different mediums and surfaces. A simple stencil can be used to express ideas in a creative manner – from conveying one’s ideas and beliefs to diverse artistic expression. Join the artist collective, Tlacolulokos, and come learn how to make your own designs with easily accessible materials.

The artist collective Tlacolulokos is made up of Dario Canul (b. 1981) and Cosijoesa Cernas (b. 1986), both natives of Tlacolula, Oaxaca, Mexico. The collective works in different graphic mediums, including: video, sound, graphic art and painting. Their work is a combination of different styles from street art, to murals and screen printing. Their works take place on the street and within traditional art spaces. Through their work, Tlacolulokos offers a reflection of local reality, and the problems and challenges of their place of origin.
