Excerpt from a 2011 Chelsea Green interview with Derick Montez: 

Do your New Mexico roots influence your work? What about living in San Francisco?

Oh yea, New Mexico is a wild ass place. It really does still have a Wild West feel. It has a huge Latino and Native American population, and I feel really blessed that I got the chance to grow up in a place that is rooted in so much culture from Low-riders, Spanish weddings, rodeos, powwows, beautiful desert skies, ancient pueblos, gangs, nature, religion, and blue collar hard working people. I would be a totally different person if I didn’t grow up with all these influences. I remember being a kid, about six or seven, going to my grandmother’s house and seeing my uncles’ low-riders outside, and covered in black and grey tattoos with barbed wire, Guadalupe and praying hands. That kind of iconography really sticks with you.

Living in San Francisco definitely influences my work, it’s impossible for it not to. There are so many amazing resources at your fingertips living in the bay, from walking down the streets of Chinatown to grabbing a burrito in the mission; you’re just a bike ride away from so many influential surroundings.
