CHIDO: a collaboration between photographer Serene Supreme & mixed media artist Ramses Alarcon. Together they bring out the inner cool or “chido” of the first forty respondents to Serene’s open call for models. Her signature Polaroid portraits were enlarged and printed, then directly drawn and painted upon by Ramses. With a commitment to showing the select shot for every volunteer-model and every drop of ink and paint applied by Ramses, the series catalogs an unfiltered exploration of how different “cool” can be from one person to another.


Thursdays & Saturdays 2:00-6:00 p.m. September, 6th through the “CHIDO” Exhibit Finale October 4, 2014. Or by appointment,
