About RISE
Los Angeles is blessed with an abundance of great artists, fine galleries and world class museums. However, it is not as rich as many U.S. cities in terms of public art in open spaces. We are constantly bombarded with signage and commercial advertising in our streets, but where is the public art there? Enter the graffiti artist. We’re talking not about taggers, who commit vandalism simply to assert their identity or territory, but about artists who take their creative efforts seriously. Those who talent and work have been recognized by the established art community. All of the artists represented in our exhibit have done graffiti at some point in their careers. Most if not all of them have done pieces on the streets that were commissioned or otherwise authorized by the real property owners, thereby avoiding the element of vandalism, and all of them have made their way into reputable galleries if not museums. The heart and soul of graffiti art is to be visible from the streets and to be part of the urban landscape, so the challenge for these artists is how to maintain this heart and soul while displaying their work in galleries or museums.

We hope you enjoy our exhibit and that it sparks a greater appreciation of the graffiti art that pervades our city. We must also express our heartfelt gratitude to Inner-City Arts for allowing us to be part of their 2013 Summer on 7th!

Art Displays + Installations
Visit the 2010 Los Angeles Art Show and explore the mediums and methods of the visual image in a myriad display of art installations, sculpture, and video work. Highlighted with the participation of regional-area Arts Organizations and Museums, the Show’s art spaces provide a panoramic slice of the of the city’s expanded creative engagements. Following is a cap on some of 2010’s art happenings.
This exhibition brings together Legendary Street Artists Mear One, Kofie, Retna, and El Mac to the Los Angeles Art Show for daily live art performances, curated by Bryson Strauss of L.A. Art Machine. What originated in the U.S. as the “tag” has evolved into one of the most sophisticated and challenging forms of contemporary art. This event recognizes the talents of these four artists while celebrating the historic journey and enduring nature of graffiti art, from the caves of Lascaux to the spas of Pompeii and from the streets of Los Angeles to the walls of galleries around the world. Working on large-scale canvases provided bu LUCIUS HUDSON, the artists will begin their work on January 20 and will paint live each day from noon to 6 PM, culminating in a closing ceremony on Sunday, January, 24, 2010 at 2PM, outside the main entrances of West Hall A

Here’s a shot from day 1 of Kofie’s piece:
