Binho CBS Crew returned to LA from Sao Paolo Brasil for the Battle Grounds graffiti event in San Diegeo, CA, where he painted a production with TEWSR, DYTCH, and DCYPHER, repping the CBS crew with his unique blend of nature and modern technology intertwined with the letterforms of graff. Here Binho goes old school with his letters, which compare nicely with TRIXTER’S funk flavor. DYTCH plays monkey in the middle with a big blue gorilla in the center of the prodo. And like that, Bihno jumps back on a plane for destinations unknown. This spot is getting new pieces this week so look out for updates on this fresh location.
The French Connection AKA ASTRO and KANOS ODV CBS Crew were here for the Graffiti Fine Art event in Silverlake, and DRAST took them for a side trip to Melrose Alleys where they spent a few hours doing the spray.
DRAST went IN! on this free standing garage off Melrose and La Brea, which is the lone structure left standing after the corner lot buildings were razed a couple of months back. Check out all the characters in this one man production, with a memorial to CBS leaders and mentors SKATE, ROB ONE, NACE, and BIZR 68. Blazing!
Stash from ICU Art sent us a few photos of the completed mural by AXIS Can’t Be Stopped Crew and SWANK from Seeking Heaven Crew, two longstanding Los Angeles graffiti writers with a reputation for fine art skills. Dudes went in on this full wall piece and it’s a shame it was erased so quickly from Melrose Avenue, as we were not able to get our own high resolution shots of the wall. Thanks for the hookup Stash!
Also take a look at the video of the production of the mural, provided as well by Stash from ICU Art – Big Ups!
We will forgive you if you missed this incredible piece of spraycan art by AXIS and SWANK. The wall opposite Fairfax High School on Melrose was graced by this mural for only a week, roughly twice as long as it took to put it up. AXIS and SWANK worked for 3 or 4 days on the psychedelic composition of a tortoise, skeleton, elephants, pineapple, frog, kitten, fatcap and bass just for the chance to flex. Art for art’s sake, the way it’s supposed to be. We caught up with them while they were at work on the spot, and the mural was buffed by the time we had a chance to roll back around to get finished shots.
