Empress Contemporary Presents “Off the Wall” Graffiti Show 2014
Empress Contemporary is excited to host a special art event on Saturday, April 26, 2014, featuring street artists Chor Boogie, Mike “Bam” Tyau, APEX, and Codak at Empress Contemporary, located in the Broker’s Building Gallery.
At “Off the Wall” Graffiti Show 2014, guests will have the unique opportunity to meet and mingle with the world-renowned street artists in an exclusive setting with hosted food and cocktails, as well as music performed by DJ Young Einstein of Ugly Duckling.
In recent years there has been an increasing interest in an ephemeral and viral form of art that is marking urban settings around the world, and has developed a flourishing subculture all its own. This is the first ever event in San Diego where people can acquire works of art from these famous street artists.
About the featured artists:
Originally from San Diego, the artist known as Chor Boogie currently resides in San Francisco but is an internationally known artist and has traveled extensively to exhibit his work around the world. His drive and his passion fueled his study from Renaissance artists such as Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and Rembrandt to more modern artists like Klimt, Van Gogh, Dali, combining a street culture of modern-day spray paint mentors such as Phase2 and Vulcan.
Mike “Bam” Tyau has been writing with spraycans and creating aerosol art since 1983. Born and raised in Hawaii, Bam’s current work reflects his heritage. He aims to put the many cultural flavors in his murals. His art is a Hawaiian mixed-plate with all the cultural island flavors, but updated with a modern hip-hop twist.
A young, San Francisco-based artist, APEX has quickly made a name for himself in the world of street art, in both the Bay Area and abroad. Having coined the term “Super Burner,” his pieces are most commonly huge, multilayered productions, packed with patterns and a vivid array of colors. When one thinks “graffiti writer,” San Francisco’s own APEX might not be the first thing that comes to mind. His letters are so beautifully crafted and styled that it is tough to see it as only a form of graffiti.
Codak’s work is defined by an acute sense of how to utilize space and composition in an organic fashion while maintaining a constructed approach with a mixed media base. He employs the subtle use of color intermixed with line work and creates harmonious clashes with graphic design and street art.
