SURVIVE is an exhibition featuring a conceptually coherent and significant, original body of work by emerging artists of the L.A. based graffiti crews LTS KOG: SINER, FISHE, DREYE, KYLE THOMAS, and NATHAN SMITH.
The exhibition will feature 36 3x4 ft. canvasses. The artists work from the same flat monochromatic palette mixing ink, acrylic, markers, brush, rollers, and spray paint.
Their abstract work on the street translates directly across surfaces, textures, and contexts onto the canvas. The fearless originality and brutal honesty of their works create a dramatic composition that reflects an aggressive obsession with technique and medium. The works’ distinctively raw aesthetic results in something chaotic, yet beautiful.

SURVIVE has consciously chosen Oakland to follow up the exhibition in New Orleans and Detroit to provoke a dialogue on the transformative power of art. Inviting Bay Area street culture purveyors and art audiences to the showcase of emerging artists in a formerly vacant structure, and now transformed ‘pop-up’ gallery space, the concept, the process, and the art reinforce the purpose: SURVIVE.
