Cache Cachicken

Cache is a Los Angeles based graffiti artist from Guatemala City, Guatemala. His murals have been popping up wall by wall for over a decade. He is most known for his vibrant chubby chickens, which have become icons in the Los Angeles cityscape.  His career has been influenced by such writers as Carlos Castañeda, who describes humans as being "trapped in human chicken coops".  Cache's works range from simple, whimsical designs, to collaborative murals and community-oriented pieces.  A common focus for Cache is reviving neglected areas of the city and replacing institutionalized colors with his vibrant murals, as well as questioning the effects of corporate logos and consumer branding.  

He has exhibited in Romania, Mexico, the United States, and Guatemala.  His work has been included in the Getty Research Institute's L.A. Liber Amicorum graffiti blackbook project, Dreams Deferred at the Chinese American Museum in Los Angeles, Migracion y Revolucion hosted by the National Institute of Anthropology and History in Mexico City, and was invited to do a live painting for Roger Waters' Pink Floyd The Wall Concert in Bucharest.
