Screen shot 2010-07-15 at 11.13.17 PM The East Bay Express each year recognizes the baddest, raddest and dopest talent in the San Francisco Bay Area. This year, our collective, the Taller Tupac Amaru was named the Best Political Art Collective in the BEST OF THE BAY 2010 Awards. Together with Jesus Barraza, I, Favianna, co-founded the Taller Tupac Amaru back in 2003. Later we would be joined by the uber talented Melanie Cervantes. The three of us would later join Justseeds and Melanie and Jesus would later form Dignidad Rebelde. Yes, lots of collective art-making going on here. You can hear an in-depth interview by our fellow JS collective member, Dylan Miner, by clicking here.

The article reads:The three can be found making screen-printed political posters in Rodriguez's small backyard studio in Oakland. Their provocative and lively prints are also distributed to nonprofits and grassroots organizations, with themes such as anti-war, police brutality, and immigration.
