The dynamic trio of Rudy Salazar, Mando Aldama, and Chuck Serna of Phoenix did it again. Their annual Lowtography Art Show featuring the lowriding community’s top photographers and artists was once again the must-attend show of the year.
Having outgrown its previous location, Lane Splitters Garage was the perfect venue for attendees to enjoy a full day filled with lowriders cars, motorcycles, vendors, and, of course, lowrider art. An entire city block was closed down to accommodate the 50-plus motorcycles and Phoenix car clubs, like Spirit, Klique, Los Boulevardos, Slow Lane, as well as Los Angeles’ own Lifestyle Car Club.
The street was littered with vendors like Low Down and Dirty, Working Class Cultura, Paint and Hope, and SugarMill Studios of Las Vegas. The main attraction, of course, was inside. Straight Razor Barbershop and Supreme Seventies created a contrasting background to the artful displays of Ron Hernandez, Albert of Vicious Paint, and Bugz Gonzalez of Bugz Auto Art.
Photography exhibits, included entries all the way from Japan, courtesy of Fisheye Photography. Los Angeles representatives included Saul Vargas, Jose “Flikazo” Ortiz, and even Superiors of Orange County made the trip with Mike Gonzalez’s recently completed Harley-Davidson “Home Wrecker.” Each year this event gets bigger and better. One can only imagine what they have in store for us next year. See you in Phoenix.
