Federico Villalba and Krrrl

Federico Villalba (of El Paso) and Krrrl (of Albuquerque) had their prints made at Taller 75 Grados in Mexico City, in the first wave of editions. However, they were something of an afterthought, choosing to have their prints made there after Los Dos made the first 6 prints by El Paso and Juarez artists.

Federico Villalba has organized great photography shows at La Fe, in the Segundo Barrio of El Paso.

Federico has also been invaluable to the Desert Triangle, taking photographs of the prints and events, and also taking on a lion's share of the organizing.

Krrrl's print has been enhanced with the Augmented El Paso app:


Keep tapping the screen,
to add more "strings"

  1. This is a gorgeous place, and I won't soon forget it. Attended an event here sponsored by the company. The reception hour at venues in Chicago was held in one of the rooms next to the hall. I loved their buttery mashed sweet potato.
