Graffiti isn’t just for the urban landscape anymore – it’s contemporary art, it’s being collected, and it’s used by brands to be younger and more relevant. On October 8th, a couple of us here at Secret Agent PR headquarters ventured out to experience this new breed of urban art on display at the grand opening of UrbnLUX’s “Graffiti For Life” exhibition at the Crewest Gallery, in downtown Los Angeles. This exhibition was one of the first of its kind – blending the well-known graffiti styles of urban artist, ManOne, with pieces from some of Los Angeles’ most talented furniture, industrial and fashion designers. The UrbnLUX exhibition showed an upscale and more refined side to graffiti art. ManOne also showcased some of his newest paintings using a very interesting technique that creates two to three pieces of art out of one installation. See the video below:
Participating URBNLUX collaborators included: Reza Feiz, Cory Grosser, Benjamin Rollins Caldwell, Ando Pndlian, Roger Bennett, Brian Rupp, and Lantern Masters.
