Tattoo Artist & Painter

We are kicking off Hispanic Heritage Month with an art installation by one of the most celebrated tattoo artists and painters in Los Angeles. @NikkoHurtado’s art is undeniably iconic, drawing from realism and deeply rooted in culture.

Nikko grew up with a passion for creating art. The son of Mexican welder and a Hispanic homemaker, he chose to follow a path that was much different than the one his parents had taken. This divergence allowed him to create a destiny of his own design.

Nikko’s art is well known and respected by people from many different cultures. It is his roots that gave him a deep appreciation for Hispanic culture and inspired him to weave cultural influence into his work.

Chefs & Restaurant Owners

For the Trujillo sisters, entrepreneurial spirit was a huge part of their upbringing. Faviola and Gabriella were raised in a family where culture and business were intertwined. It makes sense that, as adults, they took their father’s example, saw a need for authentic Mexican food and decided to create a business dedicated to preserving Hispanic culture through food. This is how the @tacoytacolv chain of restaurants came to be.

Despite the odds, their business took off and is well known for its truly delicious and authentic Mexican cuisine. The sisters’ story is proof that when you have passion, refusal to allow challenges to stop you, and a deep connection to your heritage, anything is possible.
