This Month We Recap 2 Art Shows and AGNTS Journey to Both Los Angeles' Container Yards.
As soon as we arrived the crowd was thick, snaking through the terrain and taking in all the different art that was offered to them. There were drawings, paintings, prints, sketches, slaps; you name it, ATOMIK and CAB laced it. We finally made our way through the herds and got to the table where the artists were signing black books, knocking out stickers and finishing up their one-of-a-kind collab prints.
When you walked through the first set of doors there were posters and stickers everywhere and a huge USPS 228 slapped up with “Still Posted” tagged out. As you moseyed on through with regrets that you couldn’t take in more in that brief moment, you walk into the main show room and there was nothing but straight heat posted on these walls. Canvases, sketches, paintings, wood work; I mean, every medium you can think of was there. It was so dope to see all the different techniques artists are using now and the ways they present them. One of the illest moves were the huge paste-ups of people and quote bubbles, with comments or whatnot about the work from a seemingly uninformed or unschooled, yet curious, audience. Connected to this was a side room that was fully bombed, tagged, stickered and pasted up as a sick collage from all the artists involved.
While CAB finished his work we walked around snapping flick after flick. Something that really hits you in a place like the Container Yard as you walk through is just how peaceful it is to open your mind and listen with your eyes and not your ears, as you soak in the beauty that has been birthed here by the legends of past, present and future.
CAB finished his piece and we got some solid pics of his blue-purple-green blends and the cartoony character. We headed back downstairs to flick floor two and then the first, where huge murals and works in progress were sprawled across the walls.
