Joe Bravo - Tortilla Canvas


Los Angeles artist Joe Bravo uses tortilla as canvas for his art. Bravo first started the acrylic paintings on tortillas when he was in college and couldn't afford canvases. Now his paintings sell for up to $1,800 each.

I've burned plenty of tortillas but I've never thought to make them into art. I think it takes serious talent...something that I don't have when it comes to painting on tortillas.
