“It is with deep regret that the Serie Project announces the passing of its founder, the Chicano painter and printmaker, cultural activist and arts educator Sam Z. Coronado.
Born in Ennis, Texas on July 12, 1946 to parents Sam Zaragosa and Margarita Coronado, Sam Z. Coronado voluntarily enlisted and served in the Army between 1964 and 1967. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin, where he co-founded the Chicano Art Students Association, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1975.
Following a successful career in commercial illustration, Coronado turned to cultural activism. He founded Houston’s Arcoiris, a state-wide network of Latina/o artists, in 1980. Together with visual artists Sylvia Orozco and Pio Pulido, Coronado co-founded Austin’s Mexic-Arte Museum in 1984.
During this time, he also owned a private gallery named Cibola Studio on 5th Street in Austin. Coronado founded Austin’s collaborative workshop Coronado Studio (1991), nationally renown for its fine art serigraphy.
In 1993, Coronado founded the Serie Project, where he committed himself to promote the art of serigraphy, as well its continued influence throughout the Latino Arts. Coronado’s personal oeuvre in painting and printmaking has been the subject of many exhibitions and publications across the United States, Mexico, Europe and Africa. In 2012, the Austin Visual Arts Association presented him with the Lifetime Achievement Award.”

Shawn Native, founder & owner of the brand Native™, called me up to tell me had had finally finished working on a few more pieces for his F/W collection. I met him later that week, wondered off one afternoon (along with Luis Nava, Native's creative director), and shot an extension to their Fall/Winter Look Book.

“Last week some NYC Pigeons flew south to Austin for the first time to participate in this year's SXSW events. We partnered with Austin's sneakerhead hub, Nice Kicks, in a rooftop music showcase featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Kevin Gates, Gunplay, Vince Staples, Doughbeezy, Denzel Curry and more. The party popped off in that Texan sun, and we had some surprise guest performances from YG and Trinidad James!
