Retna – Downtown LA

Retna crushes murals all over LA. His work is characterized by massive scale, incredibly detailed and cryptic typography, and it is almost always coupled with a figurative piece by his partner in crime MAC. If you ever drive around LA, they are impossible to miss.

Retna lets us peek his downtown LA studio (and coincidentally drives past my studio) and brings us to a recently mural he did with MAC at a church on Skid Row.

David Choe – Nothing to Declare

On April 23rd David Choe is rocking his first show in Los Angeles in 6 years and he is going to be striaght killin’ it. Through some good fortune, I was invited to the private view on April 22nd and I am amped! This show is kicking off the opening of Lazarides gallery’s 8,000 square foot space in Beverly Hills for the Spring and Summer! Epic… Lazarides gallery reps it so hard in London, I’m amped they’re bringing the love to LA. This video has nothing to do with the show “Nothing to Declare” but everything to do with David Choe since it’s about the documentary about the crazy bastard, “Dirty Hands”. If you’re in the city of angels, make sure to peep this show, becuase it may be a long long time until the next one.
