Tortilla Art and more from Joe Bravo. Bravo has become quite well known for his painting on tortillas. He says: "I use the Tortilla as a Canvas because it is an integral part of the Hispanic Culture and my heritage. For the subject matter of my tortilla paintings, I use imagery that is representative of Latinos, conveying their hopes, art, beliefs and history. As the tortilla has given us life, I give it new life by using it as an art medium." 125 Paseo de la Plaza, #300, Biscailuz Building [Olvera Street] , Los Angeles , 90012 More info here.
