Honoring Our Forgotten Heroes
We also, pay tribute Richard Duardo, a maverick artist who passed unexpectedly this week. Known as the Warhol of the West, he was the founder Modern Multiples, a fine art printing studio where he reproduced silkscreen images from the most prominent artists of our time, in addition to creating his own original works. We were fortunate to have had his help on our August 2013 issue in a collaboration with Antonio Pelayo. I believe our interview with him may have been the last published feature story on him and his significant contributions to art in Los Angeles.
As always, we invite you to support independent journalism that focuses on the communities which comprise the greater East Side. Your ad saluting our Latino veterans is a perfect way to help us all remember that their sacrifices and service will not go unheralded or forgotten. Your support is invaluable and helps us continue to highlight the beauty and history and heritage that, we as residents, small business owners, and stakeholders in the Greater East Side, who live and work in communities like El Sereno, Lincoln Heights, Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Boyle Heights and beyond, are heirs to.
