PHOTOS FROM MIAMI

This year The Seventh Letter teamed up with Klughaus Gallery and Live from The Streets to create an out of the box experience merging live music with the violation of rented moving trucks. With Meca (Seventh Letter’s right hand man) drumming on the roof of the trucks throughout the week, the constant drinking of Budweiser, and the group sampling of phychedelics we are sure to bring you an entertaining trip video within the next month. Razor blade.

RIME – 50 CHARACTERS VIDEO – MIAMI – TSL – LFTS

Video from Rime’s last visit to Miami during Art Basel



Being a fan of Live From The Streets, I reached out to Mr. Green asking him to make the music for the 50 Characters video. Below is an episode of Life From The Streets, covering how Mr. Green made custom beats from video footage shot in Miami. Only Mr. Green can take high rants, parrot talk, and arguments with rent-a-cops and make some musical sense out of it…

MOWING THE SPOT WITH CHARACTERS

50 Characters in a row-

This year in Miami the goal was to find a long enough wall to try a new concept, treating bunched characters like a repeated series of throw ups. I wanted to create something that had a similar feel to what writers of the 70′s & 80′s would paint end to end across subway cars.

The hope was to paint something that grabbed attention for a few seconds while riding by. The longer the wall, the better. With this in mind, I sketched up the idea using the characters eyes as a constant repeating form. Not knowing how long the wall I would end up painting would be, I showed up with only 12 characters and a “YO” throw up sketched…

Getting started with a serieds of “O” shaped ovals, I ended up marking out spaces for a total of 50 characters.

Having only 13 sketched out I had to freestyle the last 37. This was a real pain in the ass due to all of the foot traffic, chaos, and people approaching me while working over the weekend.

I am happy with the finished result. Some parts are lacking balance, some have funny errors, but it’s a good attempt at something I will try again. This wall looks best in person, or while driving 45mph down NE Miami Ave…

MIAMISM

Headed out to Miami for this years Art Basel / Primary Flight. There were double the amount of artists painting this year which was quite an overload. The streets were taken over buy a flood of writers who were on a mission to paint as much as possible. As soon as the allocated spots were filled, writers spread onto neighboring buildings, taking over blocks in the fashion district. No time to post it all, but it’s not hard to find anywhere else on the net.
