Catalogue Note
For nearly two decades, Brownsville-based artist Cande Aguilar has been developing his unique barrioPOP style, a series that reflects on border culture, memory, and landscape. El Gran Cheeto features the artist’s signature freestyle mashup of vibrant colors (including neon “Cheeto” orange), text, and representational imagery into a compelling visual language. As Leslie Moody Castro noted in a review of Aguilar’s work, “This is not the Pop Art of Art History. This is the Pop Art of Brownsville, Texas.”

A portion of proceeds will benefit the artist. For inquiries or to place a phone or absentee bid, please email bid@thecontemporaryaustin.org .
