WERC AT COLOR WALK MURAL FESTIVAL

Mexican border city, Ciudad Juarez, has had the unfortunate stigma of being one of North America's most violent cities.  Through the help of muralists and street artists, the city is trying to change that perception with a new campaign and mural festival called COLOR WALK.

The idea of COLOR WALK is to create street art pieces that will create pride and make positive statements of the community as well as attract tourism by bringing some renown national and international artists.

The first (of many murals to come) has been produced by one of our very own, WERC.
Check out his piece entitled "Rise Up":

TRIGZ (RIP)

RIP: Michael Christopher Pebley Sr. (AKA TRIGZ)

Los Angeles lost a true soldier this weekend.  Not only a tattoo artist and graff writer, but
more importantly a family man and friend to many.  He will be sorely missed.

Here's a short video by the homie Estevan Oriol featuring Trigz:
