Back at it for December, 2012′s Art Basel, Rime and The Seventh Letter teamed up with Klughaus Gallery and Live From The Streets to bring an out of the box experience to Miami. With rented UHaul trucks to be painted, mobile music performances, and a cache of alcohol, weed, and mushrooms on deck, Rime and crew were able to keep the party going through out the week. Long nights of painting, partying, disappearing people and vehicles, and outwitting cock blocking cops made for hard to forget adventure.
Behind the scenes - See the Live From The Streets episode (featuring Rime, Wen & others) made from sounds collected from this Art Basel trip…

Back in 2011, CR painted this wall in Hollywood.
Last week Persue and I came through to repaint the wall. Instead of covering over the previous work, we tried to maintain some of CR’s original strokes. Where the pieces overlap the black we tried changing the color way over to blue…

“Down For You” is a new body of work from Victor Reyes.
“Victor Reyes has dedicated more than half of his life to painting. Commitment is evident in his work and is a constant theme in the tradition of the graffiti movement. Dedications are hallmarks, written in tribute for the memory of those who came before us and for those who have departed. “Down for you” is a collection of paintings in oil and spray paint that conjure up an imaginary world of pigments and memories.
These pictures are the building blocks of a new painting language for Victor Reyes. Classical references are deconstructed in primitive strokes to complete these anti-portraits and landscapes. The meanings derived from these pieces are multifaceted. Plain objects, stretched across color fields that combat the frame work to which they are bound and tethered, reveal the excitement of destruction. The momentum and rhythm of these movements obscure earlier marks of beauty and begin to decompose the subject into forms less recognizable.” – Known Gallery
