Born and raised in Boyle Heights, Ernesto Vazquez is an artist with a background in community organizing. He is based at Solidarity Ink in Los Angeles and his work has been exhibited in various galleries around the country.

Ernesto utilizes a variety of printing techniques including linoleum block printing, woodblock printing and silkscreen to create works ranging in subject from political to mythic. Numerous influences can be identified in Ernesto’s art including family, his upbringing in East Los Angeles, street art, social justice, community empowerment issues, and his ties to Solidarity Ink.

Solidarity Ink was established in 2009 by Ernesto Vazquez, Jose Roberto Barrera, Enrique Barrera, Jose Roberto Veliz and Rene Rivas. Solidarity Ink is a grassroots business owned and operated by its members to promote community development, sweatshop-free practices, and the expression of consciously provocative messages.

Organized by Mario Davila for Antigua Coffee House, Works from Solidarity Ink: The Prints of Ernesto Vazquez, highlights a selection of limited edition political and expressive works created at Solidarity Ink between 2009-2012.
