Incredibly Impressive Graffiti Art at Long Beach Museum

,

Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape—that is the theme for this year’s Long Beach Museum of Art (LBMA) Exhibit. This epic affair features a blank white wall as a canvas for contemporary artists to do whatever they want.

In collaboration with Thinkspace Gallery, LBMA puts on a historical show that will run through September 27, 2015. The convergence of street art and paintings features the work of artists like Esao Andrews, Audrey Kawasaki, Aaron Horkey, James Bullough, Alex Yanes, Tristan Eaton, and Andrew Schoultz.

According to the museum’s Executive Director, Ron Nelson, One of the goals behind Vitality and Verve is to spotlight artists who are stepping out of their studios to paint on a grand scale using outdoor walls as their canvas as well as urban artists who are beginning to work in a traditional studio setting.”
