Cardboard Art Reveals Hidden Immigrant Life Amid the Affluent

Ramiro Gomez is a young artist from San Bernardino whose pieces focus on the people who keep Los Angeles looking beautiful but are often themselves overlooked. His most notable works include cardboard figures of gardeners and housekeepers installed on the streets of Beverly Hills and West L.A.

He joins Val and Madeleine in the studio to talk about the motivation behind his pieces.

Ramiro's exhibition, "Luxury, Interrupted," will be at the Chicano Studies Research Center Library at UCLA through April 8.
