Street Cred - Steve Grody Interview - Part 2

This is part 2 of our interview with Steve Grody, author of Graffiti L.A.: Street Styles and Art and the co-curator of the Pasadena Museum of California Art exhibit - Street Cred: Graffiti Art from Concrete to Canvas. Be sure to check out part 1 as well.

You briefly mentioned MOCA. Your work is currently displayed at MOCA at the Art in the Streets exhibit. Was that show the catalyst for your show?
No, as a matter of fact we started planning the Pasadena show before we ever heard about MOCA. It was interesting thing because we were planning the show and then we heard the announcement about the MOCA show. And we were like what a drag. They were going to take the wind out of our sails. And then I realized that was not the case at all. Their thing was going to be a very different focus from ours.

It has been a few days (at the time of the interview) since the opening of your show, Street Cred. How does it feel to curate such a well received museum opening?
It felt really good. It felt good to have a particular range of themes of graffiti related work I don't think has been shown before. Particularly gratifying for me was to get people that have not had exposure of this caliber.

Graffiti Morph - Gabe and Woier

I took the first picture of Gabe88's work in April of 2011. I went back to the same spot in July of 2011. I thought that I took the picture already. But since I was already there, I took another one.

It wasn't until I looked at the pictures on my computer screen that I realized that Woier modified Gabe's piece to spell out his name. Very cool!

CSM Crew in West Los Angeles

This wall was painted this weekend. I don't usually see legal walls from CSM. This wall got a slight update to the amphibian wall that was there before. This looks to be undone, so there should be more work on this wall soon.

HTC YOU Campaign

We love it when companies embrace graffiti art and realize the potential of reaching their customers. HTC used the talents of Swank and Axis to promote its YOU campaign. Here are a few that were painted around Los Angeles.

Update:
We incorrectly labeled the first wall. It was painted by CRE8. Big thanks to Glianna J Photography for the work in progress pictures.
