Chaka Resurrection - Opening Night

We attended Chaka's art show at MidCity Arts on April 25, 2009. The show displayed exactly what Chaka was known for: Having his clean Chaka tags everywhere in Los Angeles. There were canvases, spray cans, signs, a drum kick and even a fire-hydrant with Chaka's tags on it. For the younger generation that attended the show, this was the first time they were able to see tags of the infamous graffiti writer that got his fame 18 years ago.

For more information about Chaka, check out the article that appeared in today's Los Angeles Times.

In the back, we were also treated to tags of another Los Angeles graffiti legend: Oiler LOD, IFK, COI. In the early 90s, Oiler had Los Angeles completely covered. This included streets, billboards, buses, freeway signs and freeway overpasses. He had the most insane spots. My most favorites were the backs of hanging street signs. There are still some that are running today.
