"Sometimes I have described Chaz Bojorquez as the West Coast version of Keith Haring or Jean-Michel Basquiat to give someone a general idea, but really think Chaz will bear out as ultimately more influential. The chapter on Chaz is not closed and he is working hard every day on his art, or his mission to promote his art and movement, in commercial and non-commercial ways.
I believe that, when the chapter will be finally written in its entirety, Chaz will be seen as a worldwide seminal figure in the art world, whose love for and choice of graffiti will have a profound and lasting effect on our culture." Greg Escalante, excerpted from his preface to The Art and Life of Chaz Bojorquez.
