South Los Angeles native Jaime Zacarias aka GERMS is seemingly infected with an innate ability to channel the spirits of our surrealist predecessors, slapping our eyeballs with his grotesque yet amusing iconography and ameoba like characters while simultaneously referencing post-Chicano culture and imagery. He is known for cleverly stylized Luchador masks given life by their protruding tentacles, surrounded by floating amoebas that playfully flirt with their viewers' imaginations
Germs has exhibited in numerous Galleries and Museums, from the Musée d'Aquitaine in Bordeaux France to the Museum of Latin American Art. His artwork has been acquired by many prominent collectors and has been published in many catalogs and magazines.
We are very lucky to have been allowed to reproduce limited edition pieces utilising Germs' “Cheech Marin Salon series.” Part of Hollywood actor Cheech Marin's personal collection.
