Jose Lozano, who lives in Anaheim, California, is a rising star in the thriving Latino art scene in Los Angeles. His first book, Once Around the Block, came out in 2009. Born in Los Angeles, his family moved to Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, when he was a baby. Growing up on the border, 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. He did loteria portraits of various light rail riders for the La Brea/Expo Station for the Los Angeles Metro. Lozano teaches elementary school in Anaheim.
