Brazilian artists the Couto Bros present Gang Signs, a stylized look at some of the hand symbols LA’s gangs use to identify themselves. After researching and gaining permission from the gangs, the artists have created artistic renditions of the signs of the Latin Kings, Compton Crips, Mafia Crips, MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha), and Ñetas (Puerto Rico.) Only 10 prints of each design have been made, which you can purchase by getting in touch personally through the artists’ website.
