Ricardo Duardo (1952-2014) grew up in East Los Angeles and became an artist in the early 1970s just as Chicano art was emerging. At age 28 he enhanced his commitment to Chicano art with the founding of his first print studio, Hecho en Atzlan. He excelled in painting and print making, mentoring and working with hundreds of Latino artists in his highly acclaimed Eastside print studio, Modern Multiples. Shortly after his death in 2014, the McNay Museum in San Antonio honored him with a solo art exhibit of Pop Art. His paintings at the McNay featured many pop art images, including Marlon Brando, Pablo Picasso, Billy Holiday and Elvis Presley.
