Jaime Muñoz,  LA Commute, 2020, The Pit.

 

The Pit Boys and their toys. Car culture is alive and kicking with this pimped-up painting of a Toyota truck, which is a “recurring motif” in the works of Jaime Muñoz, says The Pit gallery director Adam D. Miller. The car is perceived as a symbol of value and desirability by young Latinos, Miller adds, and the Pomona-based artist often restores trucks in his spare time. The acrylic painting, finished with flocking and glitter, sold for $9,000 to a local Los Angeles collector during the fair’s VIP preview on Thursday.
