Artist Spotlight: Terra ——— Terra has been making a comeback in the last couple years, painting some of the most outlandish spots in Downtown L.A. He utilizes unique and intricate styles in spots that no one would think to see paint. It’s great to see this artist back at it. We look forward to his next piece, as they are all different in terms of style and choice of placement. #terragraff #terragraffiti #graffiti #graffitiart #spot #streetart #graff #losangeles #grafflifela

Artist Spotlight: @zesmsk ——— Zes, or Zeser, is known for high-visibility spots that last. From elevated tags to extremely intricate pieces on small ledges, this artist has continually pushed the boundaries of placement. He is not only well-versed as a graffiti artist, but he has ventured into a realm of his own. His art has featured in shows in Tokyo and New York, such as at @kaikaikiki gallery, joining big names like Virgil Abloh, Madsaki and Takashi Murakami. #zes #zeser #zesermsk #graffiti #artwithoutboundaries #art #fineart #graffitispotting #graff #graffitiartist #msk

Artist Spotlight: @a_d_z_e ——— When it comes to doing more with less this guy is a prime example of that. Using simple but effective styles and tags, adze capitalizes on space and uses the full spot to his advantage. His choice of spots is not only in your face, but usually out of most people’s reach. Whether his pieces are high off of the ground or capitalizing on limited space, he definitely thinks outside the box, while also maintaining the standards of graffiti. #adze #adzegraffiti #artistspotlight #graffiti #streetart #spot #graffitiart #graff #graffitiletters #graffitilegends #losangeles #losangelesgraffiti #downtownla

Artist Spotlight: Anemal & Pharoe (@anemalone & ?) ——— Easily one of the best spots in the history of Los Angeles graffiti, this bridge divides downtown and Vernon, leading up to one of the oldest graffiti yards left in LA (Soto Yard). Anyone and everyone who has painted graffiti in LA since 2006 has seen this piece. Originally painted by Pharoe, Anemal added his name to this spot a few years later. Now, this spot is monumental and will forever be a staple of Los Angeles graffiti, representing an iconic era of LA graffiti that ended soon after. #anemal #pharoe #graffiti #losangeles #artistspotlight #artistsoninstagram #artist #lagraffiti #losangelesgraffiti #vernon #streetart

Artist Spotlight: @merch_merchy ——— Graffiti is an art of many mediums. Some of the more obvious ones are spray paint, acrylic markers, stickers, and house paint. On the other hand, the lesser-known tools of the trade include some of the most permanent mediums, such as etch bath and scribing. In this picture @merchymerch has used etch bath to burn/inscribe his name onto a class window. This is done by filling up an empty marker with etch bath (a substance made for frosting glass). It becomes permanent within minutes. One of the most effective tools when used properly, this substance can be very harmful if it comes into contact with one’s skin/eyes. Use of this medium speaks to Merch’s dedication and commitment to the craft. #merch #merchgraffiti #artistspotlight #awb #graffiti #streetart #etchbath #urbanexploration #urbanexplorer #graffitiart #graff

Artist Spotlight, continued: Shepard Fairey/Obey ( @obeygiant ) ——— From a couple of months ago: Shepard Fairey and his team working on a massive mural in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. This one - set up with the help of @brandedarts - turned out truly amazing, with Fairey once again using iconic images to speak up against injustice and inspire change. #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #murals #wallmural #shepardfaireyart #artistspotlight #streetart #losangeles #dtla #legend

Artist Spotlight: Shepard Fairey/Obey ( @obeygiant ) ——— Growing up as a street artist in Los Angeles, Fairey understood the importance of branding and creating a campaign that is immediately recognizable. Using minimalistic portraits of artists, philanthropists, politicians, and other iconic figures, he reached a vast majority of people, from those who have seen his work on the front of abandoned billboards to those who have seen that same work in galleries in all over the world. He primarily uses stickers and wheat pastes as a medium for sharing his vision and values, merging pop art and street art to confront viewers with extensions of their own culture. While he originally became famous for his Andre the Giant wheat pastes, he quickly gained worldwide notoriety for making the popular Barack Obama campaign logo, which was used to represent the president during his 2008 run for office. Fairey has continued to grow his reach exponentially - he currently holds gallery shows selling his mixed-media pieces for upwards of $50,000. In addition to his gallery work, he paints large-scale murals, reaching the size of entire walls. He continues to grow and grow as an artist, both inside and outside of the gallery. This is a true example of how pre-fame work ethic and dedication set a foundation for great success. #awb #artistspotlight #artwithoutboundaries #obey #obeygiant #shepardfairey #streetart #streetartlegend #art #obeyart #murals #wallmural #wheatpaste #stickers

For our first artist spotlight of the year, we want to highlight @swoonhq . Swoon is a street artist who started wheat pasting while she was working towards her B.A. in Fine Arts from Pratt institute in Brooklyn. At the time, she wanted to remain anonymous, rarely ever signing her name to pieces done on the street. As she progressed in the street art world and gained more notoriety, her pieces grew and grew in size as well. Swoon utilizes wheat pastes to spread her hand-designed portraits through the streets, emphasizing the geometries of urban and natural life, and imparting a message of female empowerment. Go check out her show at @jeffreydeitchgallery in New York. We are excited to see where this artist goes in the future. #swoon #brooklyn #newyork #streetart #wheatpaste #wheatpastenyc #wheatpasteart #wheatpasting #streetartist #streetartnewyork #artistspotlight #awb
