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:

Update: July 2017

Both Federico and Krrrl's prints were spotted for sale at La Pena in downtown Austin:

Federico's print was also hanging on the wall during Second Saturday Artwalk (July 8, 2017) in the Lone Star Art District of San Antonio, at the La Printeria 75 Gallery in the Freight Gallery and Studios building:
