Mission Accomplished - 10 Year Anniversary Graffiti Art Show Press Release
Ten years ago renowned graffiti artist and Los Angeles native Man One founded Crewest Gallery in Alhambra, CA, just a few minutes east of Downtown. Crewest was founded with the mission to legitimatize graffiti art by giving talented graffiti artists a professional forum in which to showcase their art while simultaneously educating the broader art community and general public about the richness, complexity and technicality of graffiti art.
Now, in 2012, graffiti art is hot. Graffiti art is showing in museums and on television. Graffiti art is on fashion and architecture. Graffiti artists are having gallery shows and being collected all over the world. In fact, last year, one of the largest and most attended shows in the history of MOCA in Los Angeles was a graffiti art exhibit called ART IN THE STREETS, which ran from April through August in 2011 and made news worldwide. Man One and Crewest Gallery blazed the trails that helped to make things like this possible for graffiti artists and their art form.
In the book Graffiti L.A., street art documentarian Steve Grody listed the opening of Crewest Gallery as a milestone event in the history of graffiti art in Los Angeles.
The evidence is clear. Over the last ten years, Crewest has helped many great artists gain notoriety and a bigger audience. These artists include Patrick Martinez, Marka27, Siner, Victor Sepulveda, Sacred194, Syndrome, Cope2, Greg "Craola" Simkins, Kofie Augustine, WERC, Mear One, Asylm, Vyal One, T-Kid, Ces and on and on.
Established and renowned artists who have exhibited at Crewest over the years include Chaz Bojorquez, George Yepes, Syd Mead, Estevan Oriol, Eriberto Oriol, Gusmano Cesaretti and international artists such as Daim & Seak (Germany), SOT & ICY (Iranian street artists), Dabs & Myla (Australia) had their first U.S. showings at Crewest.
