Whatever happened to Chaka? I bet too many of us thought he was still locked up, or worse. But, nope. Chaka -- the "nation's most prolific graffiti vandal" in the 1980s and early 90s, the golden age of tagging -- is alive and well and staying in Bakersfield, Calif., reports Mike Boehm on Culture Monster at the L.A. Times.
On April 25, King Chaka, a.k.a. Daniel Ramos, re-emerged for his first-ever solo art show at Mid-City Arts in Los Angeles. LA TACO has photos of the opening. Looks like the dude basically tagged up some things and put them in the gallery, but still ... it's Chaka.
