    Young Desmond doesn’t want to hear that see……

    Desmadre is founded on the idea that as the world becomes more connected cultures will continually draw inspiration from disparate sources to create new modes of celebrating culture. For us the idea of mashing together the strong revolutionary traditions of Posada with D.I.Y ideals and a good dose of Taco Truck aesthetics defines what it is that makes Desmadre Arte Desmadre.

    Desmadre Arte is a collective effort by curators Jose Tapia and Damion Hayes and artist Julio Guerrero to showcase emerging artists who are incorporating traditional latino cultural themes within contemporary works. Our goal is to shed light on a growing movement amongst latino artists who are exploring and incorporating cultural roots while creating work that expresses the 21st century realities and complexities of life. To do this we are producing artshows that revolve around these themes as well as maintain the website ( to showcase the artists we feel best represent these ideals. Our first show, Desmadre, will open May 14th, 2009 at Vermillion Gallery in Seattle, Wa.

    SEATTLE – Desmadre Arte, a three-person team made up of Sunnyside natives Julio Guerrero and Josè Tapia, and Tapia’s mentor Damion Hayes, will host an art show on Thursday, May 14, at the Vermillion Gallery in Seattle, located at 1508 11th Ave., from 6 to 10 p.m.
    The show, titled Desmadre: Fresh Latino Perspectives in America, will feature emerging artists who are incorporating Latino cultural themes within urban contemporary works.
    Both Tapia and Guerrero are Sunnyside High School graduates, Tapia from the class of 2002 and Guerrero from 2001’s class. Both went to the Art Institute of Seattle, where they studied different aspects of art but both ended up gravitating towards the fine arts side.
