Saber and Zes demand that the legacy of graffiti in Los Angeles’ artistic district be shown. The artistic side of the Mad Society Kings has many faces and in this case, the joining of styles between Saber and Zes represents a tip of the hat to the most fundamental graffiti aesthetic.
The “Arts District” Downtown Los Angeles is slowly becoming an epicenter for the arts and art commerce. Unfortunately it also means the people who helped build this culture are being pushed out, including the legacy of graffiti that was painted for over twenty years. “We were painting this neighborhood before it was even coined the Arts District”. This recent mural Saber and Zes have painted is a gesture towards this long term legacy as well as an homage to our future as evolving artists.
