Take It Easy

One week from today, LA-based artist Benjie Escobar will unveil a new body of work at the beautiful HutchLA boutique/gallery space in Verdugo Village, NELA. His latest work was inspired by the culture and lifestyle in East Los Angeles, and will include custom low rider bikes, original canvases, screen prints and original Benjie Escobar flash tattoos by Beautiful Truth Ink, with snacks from East Los Musubi. Check out Benjie’s instagram for sneak peeks of the work. Festivities begin at 5pm – see you there.


Saber Relaunch

I got to meet legendary Angeleno graffiti writer SABER during POW! WOW! Hawaii this week. When it comes to graffiti, it’s hard to think of a bigger name – he’s one of the most accomplished members of the world famous MSK / AWR crew, and he’s also credited with doing the largest piece in the world – on the walls of the LA river (buffed out now unfortunately). We had a great chat and he turned out to have tons of interesting thoughts about art and politics and life in general. His website has recently relaunched – check out his blog for more.
