Chicano Artists America Should Know About is a new book series showcasing the art collection of Chicano Artists throughout the United States. The first book in this series introduces the artist and the work of Jos Andr's Gir n.

Jos Andr's Gir n has been dedicated to art since early childhood. From his father's side, his New Mexican roots can be traced to the first settlers on the Rio Grande. From his mother's side to early Hispanic Arizonians and old Mexico's rich cultural history. As a young boy, he spent the summer in New Mexico on his grandfather's ranch.

Family and culture have influenced his choice of subject matter in deciding what is important to express in his art. His work almost always depicts the positive and beautiful things in the Hispanic/Latino culture. Jos Andr's Gir n draws inspiration from his roots. Soft, lofty, sunbaked portraits of his people and their lives indigenous to the beauty and enchantment of the Southwest lands.
