No Biters Allowed
May 7 - 29, 2011
May 7, 2011 from 6-10pm
In May, Crewest celebrates it's 9 Year Anniversary!
Being the first and longest running brick and mortar gallery in L.A. exclusively dedicated to graffiti we thought this show better be special.
We decided to put on a group show to not only inspire but also educate our viewers and followers about the historical contribution of some of these great graffiti artists from the West Coast.
“No Biters Allowed” is an exhibition featuring the work of artists who have been painting graffiti or active since the 1980’s and from the West Coast. These artists were pivotal in transforming the landscape of what graffiti and urban art is all about to us.
All these artists had their roots in graffiti painting and writing. Some of these artists have gone on to become fine artists, graphic designers, and self-employed owners of different companies. Others have chosen to work as mentors to young people by offering their graffiti creativity as a positive source of inspiration.
This exhibit will focus on the artwork old and new created by some of today’s most recognized street legends from that golden era.
