REVOK and ANGEL Present NOCTURNE

Graffiti Legend and Renowned Designer Premiere Book Set
At Art In The Streets Exhibition

(April, 13, 2011 – Los Angeles) Intersecting at the crossroads of skateboarding and graffiti, street art icon, REVOK, and celebrated designer, Angel Cabada, collaborate on a limited two-book set to premiere during the Art In The Streets exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Inspired by the underground activities of skateboarders and street artists, Nocturne looks behind the curtain, exposing a world of nightlife and criminal mischief through compelling imagery and candid photography.

Based in Los Angeles, REVOK and Cabada share a longstanding friendship and hold mutual respect for each others work. “Although REVOK and I come from different artistic backgrounds, there’s a very natural parallel between skateboarding and graffiti that hasn’t been deeply explored,” says Cabada.

With only 150 units printed, Nocturne is a two book, softbound collection including large and medium format posters, newsprint photo collages and a wool ski mask packaged in a custom bound box.

Nocturne will be on display April 17 through August 8, 2011 at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA in Los Angeles.

About REVOK:

REVOK is one of the most respected names in graffiti with work found in countless public spaces around the world. The Los Angeles-based artist is internationally acclaimed by museums, galleries and private collectors.

About ANGEL:

Angel Cabada is a Los Angeles-based designer best known for his work as the founding creative director for KR3W Denim Co. and SUPRA Footwear. His iconic pieces of the last two decades are widely recognized in the worlds of skateboarding and fashion.

FACTORY 413 & KNOWN GALLERY PRESENT: FAIRFAX TITANS

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, MARCH 1, 2011 – Factory 413 and Known Gallery are proud to present the FAIRFAX TITANS project. In conjunction with KNOWN Gallery, Factory 413 will be featuring an ongoing roster of artists throughout 2011. Each artist will create a custom installation in 413’s window display space on Fairfax Avenue – viewable to thousands of passerby 24 hours a day. Factory 413’s large dual-sided window display will be cleared periodically and devoted solely to a single installation – providing each artist with complete freedom to create on a canvas viewable to thousands of passer-by each day on Fairfax Avenue in Los Angeles. The project is headed up by Los Angeles’ own RETNA, creating a one of a kind mixed-media installation. The behind-the-scenes 413TV video feature (link attached) provides a rare view into the artist’s creative process and features his commentary on the one-of-a-kind piece. The Titans project will continue throughout 2011, with new artists contributing installations every quarter. Stay tuned to the Factory 413 and Known Gallery blogs for information on further developments within the project.
