Beyond Graffiti 2

A+D Museum

Installation for the Beyond Graffiti 2 exhibit at the Architecture and Design Museum.

3 completely new pieces were created for this exhibit. With these pieces, any reference to recognizable form were abandoned. The result being deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By applying abstraction, personal moments were created by means of rules and omissions.

LA Liber Amicorum

LA Liber Amicorum is a unique artists' book that binds together 143 works on paper from more than 150 of Los Angeles's leading graffiti and tattoo artists. The individual creative approaches to letter forms, hand styles, symbols, signs, and themes display the city's diverse landscape of graffiti and street art.

LA Liber Amicorum emulates the black sketchbooks, or piecebooks, that street artists often carry with them and inscribe for each other. The Getty Black Book, as it is also known, as a way of gathering these artists' work into a single bound collection, symbolizing the transformation of the creative output by rival crews of street artists into an LA Book of Friends.
