"Magu" Lujan
Gilbert Lujan was born near French Camp, California, a migrant farm workers' village, and moved to East Los Angeles around the beginning of World War II. He first began painting murals in East Los Angeles in the early 1970s. In 1973, he joined with Frank Romero, Carlos Almaraz, and Roberto de la Rocha to found Los Four. Los Four collaborated on numerous murals and on other public art installations throughout California during the next 10 years, and had a major influence in defining Chicano art in California. Lujan has exhibited his paintings and sculptures in numerous solo and group shows in the United States and abroad.
