José Lozano

José Lozano was born in Los Angeles but moved as an infant to Juárez, México. There, he found many of the cultural touchstones that continue to influence his work today—bad Mexican cinema, fotonovelas, ghost stories, and comic books. Lozano prefers to work in a series, focusing on themes like Mexican wrestlers, paper dolls, and loteria.

José Lozano lives in Anaheim, California, and makes his living as an elementary school teacher, but his passion is art. He is a rising star in the thriving Latino art scene in Los Angeles.

José's work is included in the Chicano Collections presented by Cheech Marin, check out his artist page for more information.
