TRAV | END OF THE BEGINNING
Opening reception June 28, 2014 | 7-10p
The Seventh Letter Flagship Store and Gallery
346 North Fairfax Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90036

Trav is a California-based artist who was raised on traditional letter-based graffiti. Well versed in typography, as well as the use of color, form, and line; he has adapted this diverse skill set to create an impressive new body of work. He draws much of his inspiration from hand painted signs, fashion and geometric patterns. The goal for this show is to create thought-provoking paintings that straddle the line between a traditional sign painting aesthetic, and more colorful geometric patterns reminiscent of those seen within his graffiti. The result of this pairing is somewhat of a departure from his earlier work, which was more heavily rooted in a complex graffiti aesthetic. Forgoing some of the more abstracted letter-forms, he has simplified the lettering to more easily recognizable typography. This was done in order to bring the literal messages to the forefront. Paying homage to the tradition of commercial sign painting, he paints sayings that he finds meaningful, onto wooden panels using oil-based sign painters enamel. Trav’s raw creativity, painstaking attention to detail, and mastery of color and design combine to form an exciting new body of work. – The Seventh Letter

Deconstructions – Art Exhibition Preview (Video)

Deconstructions is a double personal exhibition of the two world wide famous graffiti writers Raptuz and Poesia, which is born with the idea of making tangible the relationships that occur in the development of their indoor practices. Organized as a collaboration between Nina Torres Fine Art Gallery and Hausammann Gallery, the exhibition will be opened to the public on July 18th until the 31st, in Miami, at the location of Nina Torres Fine Art Gallery.

Introduced with a critical essay by the contemporary art curator Giada Pellicari, the exhibition will take place along the wide rooms of the space of the gallery and wants to propose a parallelism between the works by the two graffiti writers that, even if they come from two different countries in which graffiti art scene is completely different, are both based on the idea of deconstruction through the use of mixed techniques: in the case of Raptuz the analysis is more focused on iconic figures and objects, whereas for Poesia it’s more channeled to the act of painting and gesture through different decompositions of letters form.

The whole exhibition will also mirror the topic of series, which is fundamental in the development of the works by both the artists, for whom it is not just an issue to solve through the use of paint and spray-paint, but also a real method of production. All the paintings should be considered in this way as finite and functional on their own, but also as a step for the development of a complex corpus that should be seen together and experienced in situ along the environment. The artworks, then, will be mostly new and realized for the occasion of Deconstructions, a term that, actually, not only stands as a name that properly describe their way of conceiving their last production of canvases, but that should also be considered as a theme to develop through the exhibition imagined as a path. The opening will be characterized by a live painting through which the graffiti writers will show their skills and way of realizing their artworks.

There will also be an effective connection with Miami – Wynwood, the neighborhood that is world-renowned for the existence of important pieces by street artists and graffiti writers, for which Raptuz and Poesia will create two murals beginning from July 11th.

Deconstructions exhibition is developed in partnership with: Kobrapaint, streetartattack.com and Graffuturism.
