"Art in the Streets"

 

I don't get what's so wrong and arrogant about the title. Seems straightforward to me.

 

I'm prepping a shoot that day (pretty close to Santa Monica) so I don't think I'll be able to make the opening, but if we finish early I'll try to drop by.

A friend of mine got to peep some of Retna's work and he was saying that he's working on two story high canvasses. Should be interesting for sure. Hopefully this will inspire some new walls around Los Angeles and maybe get the fucking city leaders off our nut sacks. Can't even tell you how many walls have been lost(legal and illegal) because of their hate for graffiti. This shit goes just beyond keeping it the streets at this point. Shit is retarded.

Art in the Streets will showcase installations by 50 of the most dynamic artists from the graffiti and street art community, including Fab 5 Freddy (New York)

 

 

It's the message the show is conveying, along with the accompanied book and it's title. Sorry if I wasn't clear before. But whatever Im over it at this point, I got my points out.

"I was asked to respond to an open letter about all the controversy surrounding the MOCA street art show. My take on this whole conversation is this show has everyones emotions fired up which is good. I was not invited to take part in this show. I waited till the last minute and called moca up myself. It worked in my favor but this show is not an egalitarian show that is fair. It is a show of those who have made a mark on a street level and in the art world. With that said I agree there are many very powerful contributors like skept, heaven, hex to name a few from the original la graff scene that are not in the show There is an art school croud waiting to see there favorites also that they may not see, so the politics of the museum world are strange to say the least. It shows how removed everyone is from the streets. I will also say there is nobody in the show who doesn’t deserve to be, and there are some masterful works by some of the strongest street graffiti artist and that is great to see. With All the drama surrounding the show I feel that people are not aware how the fine art world works. It means a lot of people need to work harder and produce more meaningful work. As far as the question of censorship I haven’t experienced any but the question stems from the destruction of blues mural. Obviously it is screwed to remove some ones art but does anyone realize there is a veterans hospital across the street? I’m all for telling the public how evil the system is but this is a no brainer. I don’t think the poor who have lost limbs and loved ones need to be reminded every time they go to see there Dr that America makes money off there dead body’s. The whole thing was miss managed but it also shows how ready people in LA are to hate blame and talk shit over issues that they don’t inform themselves with. Come on LA just do your work. I Have put more work in than any of you & I’m in the same boat with all of you. Just do your work and try to mean what you say. Peace out and I love LA!"
