Had a good time attending the artist talk for the Love, Hope, and Street Art art exhibition which is being held at the Hornfleur Gallery. Curated by graffiti artist Luis Del Valle, Love, Hope and Street Art is a multisensory experience that educates visitors about the visual language of street artists. Viewers are engaged to better understand street language through explanations of the symbolism of street art.
In the exhibition, the evolution of graffiti from tagging, throw-ups, and burners to the corporate boardroom is displayed and interpreted. Beyond Luis Del Valle’s personal contributions to the installation, the artwork is provided by artists DECOY, Cory Stowers, Asad Walker , and HKS 181, each of whom have created 10-15 years of street art (typically deemed illegal by authorities) and are now exhibiting in galleries.
The show is on exhibition till November 17th and for more info click here.

Despite some untimely tech issues, our experience at Art All Night couldn’t have gone better and we certainly hope that we were able to deliver a memorable experience for everyone who attended.
The good weather helped set the stage, which allowed Terence Nicholson to set the tone with another fiery martial arts demonstration, and it was great getting to vibe with old friends while creating new ones through educating them on the history of SHAOLIN JAZZ and what we do. The corner of North Cap and Florida will never be the same.
Thanks to Art All Night for having us out, shouts to JaMon for both documenting the event and assisting with the merch table, props to everyone who helped spread the word, including those who posted recaps, and thanks to everyone who attended.
Stay tuned for more and to check out the full recap click Read the rest of this entry
