bigramiroWe first met West Hollywood artist Ramiro Gomez when he began placing his hand-painted cardboard figures of immigrant laborers in prominent public spaces in Bel Air, Beverly Hills and Hollywood.

We don’t know what to say, really. People on the Internets wrap their kittens up in towels, paper, socks, cloth, whatever, photograph them, and then upload them to satisfy some kind of twisted craving for “purritos.”
