PUSH | Little Tokyo Mural video

Combining Community Efforts to Create Little Tokyo Mural

Los Angeles, CA (December 8, 2014)  A new mural called, “A New Purpose” by artist PUSH, was finished September 2014 in the Little Tokyo area of Downtown Los Angeles.  The work was crafted by artist, PUSH to bring graffiti art, which is exploding in the Arts District, into the adjacent neighborhood of Little Tokyo. His vision brings a contemporary, abstract vision to the streets of Los Angeles.

Los Angeles native and based graffiti artist, PUSH, is known for his thoughtful graphic-like designs and beautiful use of color. Art Share Los Angeles, a community art center located in the heart of the Arts District collaborated with Known Gallery, an internationally known gallery of The Seventh Letter brand in the Fairfax District of Los Angeles, to bring more public art to the streets of Los Angeles. Property owner, BH Properties graciously donated this wall and supplies to the project. Supaport for this project were also received by Montana Cans, USA.

This 60-foot mural is located at 640 E. 2nd Street between Central and San Pedro Avenues in Little Tokyo. The artwork had to be created between the hours of midnight and 6AM from September 1, 2014 until its completion on September 20, 2014. Crews arrived on site and accessed a large boom that carried the artists up and around the mural. All done in the dead of night.

“It’s the first time we have partnered with Art Share L.A. to bring something unique to our property,” said Steve Jaffe, executive vice president of BH Properties, who owns the building.  “We look forward to exploring other locations in the portfolio that might be good locations for presenting artists’ work.  This property had the perfect location for a wall mural – not only does it enhance the local market but it also really distinguishes our property.”

Residence and long time visitors of the area were awestruck of the steady progress made to the mural. The artwork creates a pop of color with a mixture of strategic lines and strong color blocks that catch everyone’s eyes when they walk or drive by.

The Seventh Letter was founded in 1998 to give writers a voice, forum and respect on a global scale. Their ears are close to the street, and their eyes are still on the walls. From galleries to clothing, it’s the Truth, Loyalty and Royalty.

Art Share Los Angeles, Inc. is a non-profit community arts center is located in the heart of the Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles. The two-story building gives artists access to 14,000 sq. ft. of programmable space including a theater, gallery, studios and classrooms. Art Share’s second floor holds 30 live/work loft spaces, which are reserved for low-income artists.

BH Properties is a Los Angeles-based commercial real estate investment company, which specializes in repositioning troubled assets in the industrial, multi-family, office and retail markets.

Highsnobiety Q&A | POSE, VIZIE, OMENS & KC Ortiz Talk Upcoming Show ‘Further Farther’ at The Seventh Letter Store

Having collectively earned worldwide acclaim for their graffiti exploits and photographic documentation of those that the world has turned a blind eye on, it’s safe to say that POSE, VIZIE, OMENS and KC Ortiz are amongst a breed of artists who are successfully segueing between remaining relevant for illicit applications of their work while also earning reputations as fine artists in gallery settings. We caught up with all four on the eve of Further Farther which opens Saturday, November 8 at The Seventh Letter in Los Angeles, CA and runs through November 22.
How important is it to feel like the work is connected despite everyone having different styles and sensibilities when putting together a group show?

OMENS: On a personal level, I didn’t try to have my work connect with the others at all. Any parallels were purely coincidental/accidental. Having worked together so much in the past, I feel like a lot of us draw from the same wheel house, so naturally there’s parallels. And while I am very inspired by POSE, VIZIE, and KC, I do try very hard to have work that stands on its own.

KC Ortiz: We are a group of friends who have worked together and influenced each other over the years so there is an existing and natural connection that is there, even if we are all exploring our own styles and directions. I think we share so much history and influences that our work is constantly connected much in the same way that a group of aging brothers may be. They all go off into different paths and age in varying ways, but if you have them all in the same room you can clearly see they are related.

VIZIE: I think there are different ways to approach a group show. I think you can either approach it aesthetically, or conceptually. In our case, I think we touched on both. We started with the idea to use psychedelic colors, flourescents and glow in the dark [which would] tie all the work together. It ended up being thematically about spirituality and psychedelia. Even if something doesn’t directly connect to one person, it may connect to another in the show. It allows the viewer to make the connections and create their own narrative. In the end we all come from the same place, we are friends, and have been friends who work together, whether it be graffiti or gallery work.

POSE: We have collectively all be friends and graffiti partners for many many years so I think its very important to show gallery work together. Working with a similar overall theme or inspiration for the show is cool cause you will get to notice the very diverse way that each artist internalizes that inspiration, and the voice in which they kick it back out.

On November 8th, 2014 The Seventh Letter Flagship Store and Gallery will be showing a new body of work from Pose, KC Ortiz, Vizie, and Omens. They have worked together collectively for years, so it would make sense they would create a body of work to show as a group. The show, titled “Further/Farther” is a reflection of the collectives influence from psychedelia, youth and popular culture, design, depth, mind-bending colors, and buddhist prayer flags. The work is comprised of both art and installation. Together, the collective bodies of work come together to bend the realm of the traditional setting and bleed into an environmental experience.
