Growing up in Boyle Heights, Dewey Tafoya’s work is heavily influenced by the urban landscapes, cultures and communities of inner city Los Angeles. Often using satirical humor, much of Deweyʼs work tends to deconstruct historical contexts and then reconstruct them from the viewpoint of the oppressed and/or the under-represented. As a teaching artist, Dewey has been a part of the Self Help Graphics & Art’s Día de los Muertos Community Art Workshops for the past decade. As an artist in residence, Dewey currently teaches a monthly DIY screen printing workshop, as well as providing mobile art workshops for the organization as part of the Barrio Mobile Arts Studio (BMAS). Dewey has also been a part of the City of Los Angelesʼs Summer Night Lights program for the past several years providing screen printing workshops for the youth in the communities of Watts and South Los Angeles, and is also currently working with teens in continuation high schools throughout Los Angeles teaching screen printing and graphic design.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!
