Brothers Armando Lerma and Carlos Ramirez, aka The Date Farmers, are the shiznit of the art world at the moment, blowing up all over the place. The duo incorporates found objects, commercial ephemera and Mexican folk art that is a bit of a mash up of Basquiat and Barry McGee. There’s a cool video of the duo in action over at Current TV. They really are (or were) date farmers from Indio, a dusty farm town to the east of Los Angeles.On exhibit now at the ACE Gallery in LA through March.
