Contemporary artist and designer, Tony Peralta, is expanding the idea of beauty one screen-printed painting at a time. Peralta’s latest exhibit, Rolos and Icons II, uses images of iconic Latinas in hair rollers to explore themes of beauty, culture and power. The pop images, with a Dominican and hip hop influence, are more than just fun and vibrant. They also send a message to women - these legends are you and you are these legends.
Rolos and Icons II is on view at the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles from April 12 - May 12, 2017.
