From lowriding to tattooing to photography, perhaps no other contemporary duo has been at the forefront and influenced hip hop and street culture like Estevan Oriol and Mister Cartoon. Through their craft they have catapulted the chicano art movement onto the world stage and influenced countless other artists. “LA Originals” traces back the steps of these two “O.G.” street artists to their childhoods. Starting out as an art child prodigy and rising through the ranks of graffiti bombing, to celebrity tattooer, and from troubled youth to hip hop tour manager, photo-documentarian, portrait photographer and filmmaker.
