Mike Moody: The Brownsville Herald
Cande Aguilar’s work relays a patterned schizophrenia, with giant canvasses peppered with graffiti art, cartoons, pop culture images, crude drawings and bright colors. The artist, accordion player and co-founder of the tejano band Elida y Avante has been dubbed a “barrio pop” artist. Aguilar earns that title again with his new work which, at first glance, might seem too random but is ultimately a strong collection of stimulating, abstract visuals.
