Two Weeks of Art ~ Summer, 2014

2_weeks_of_art

If you’ve attended a graffiti event or underground art show in the past few years you’ve likely seen our event coverage editor, Erwin Recinos. Camera in hand, family in tow, he covers this city’s art scene relentlessly and with style, warmth, and passion. In this new feature, travel with Erwin across the city as he explores the events he covered for us over the last two weeks. Los Angeles is alive with graffiti, street, and underground art and this is one man’s visual diary.

“End of the Beginning” opens at The Seventh Letter Flagship Store on June 28th – TRAV opened his latest show “End of the Beginning” at the Seventh Letter Flagship Store back in late June with all new works. Stepping away from the graffiti style he is best known for, Trav’s latest paintings emphasize word play and contain elements of traditional sign painting and geometric patterns. The bright color schemes made the shapes, patterns, and words pop off the canvas in a typographic 3-D effect. To see more of TRAV’s work visit him @travmsk on Instagram.

Auctioneer Puts up “BANKSY LAX” Website

Screen Shot 2013-10-23 at 5.21.08 PM

The internet was atwitter today at the possibility of Banksy bringing his NYC outdoor ‘residency’ to Los Angeles. The speculation was furthered by a website that popped up, BanksyLAX.com, and an instagram account featuring a particular Banksy work that was seen on the streets of LA a few years ago.

Turns out the site was registered by Julien’s Auctions, not Banksy, and is an attempt to hype the planned December auction of a work that Banksy stenciled in Los Angeles that was chiseled off the wall and will be sold to the highest bidder.
