brandedarts #Repost by @turnaroundartsca We had too much fun with @aol_inc dedicating this beautiful @madsteez mural to partner school King Elementary in #Compton! The ribbon-cutting ceremony was followed by an awesome art project inspired by the artist's layering technique #aolgivesback #artsed #brandedarts #madsteez #mlk #martinlutherkingjr 2d

katyanngilmore // This is my "I finished this mural, have new shoes, and jumped a lot of times to get this photo" photo. ( by the awesome @markskovorodko). Finished the week before last, this is a shot of almost all of the 27 ft (just a couple feet missing on each side) and I'll share a full photo as the opening of the cafe approaches: Feb 15 at 3400 W Olive in Burbank, CA. Make plans to visit the cafe and bring a cardboard cutout of me or something as I'll be in Detroit. 🏼 @brandedarts #brandedarts 1w

laicreatives Today 3pm at @laartshow #LosAngeles’ #murals and the commercialization of #streetart are the subjects of two panels. The Commercialization of #StreetArt. Joining Daischendt are #WarrenBrand from @brandedarts #BrandedArts, #journalist Ed Fuentes, PR maven #HeidiJohnson of @hijinxpr
#HijinxPR , @humansmakeart #JenniferKorsen and @thrashbird13 #ThrashbirdArt, art philosopher Shelby Moser, and #TheGabbaGallery's @thegabbagallery director #JasonOstro @jasonostro panel will explore the benefits and drawbacks that #streetartists have encountered as the movement has gained popularity and prominence in #popculture, no doubt touching on the many artists of color whose pioneering work is overlooked and/or marginalized in the commercialization process.

  •   humansmakeart @mictlanmurals thank you. No apologies needed for how you feel and I don't need to censor my feed , I respect your opinion. And I def see where you are coming from. I hate that word and try to clarify when I have the opportunity, (my piece in the show is making fun of it) I think what you guys bring up is important and it affects everyone who struggles to have a voice in LA. The art world is crazy and it is most definitely dominated by white guys. It's a hard balance for me and something I'm still very new to and trying to figure out. I appreciate the honest conversations. ♡ 2w

katyanngilmore I finished this mural at the end of last week and then promptly took a loooooong nap. Final photos of the mural in the space will come after the cafe actually opens in mid February. Until then, I'll be sharing more shots of the process and the finished mural. As it gets closer, I'll be sharing details about how to check this out in person! I'm so grateful to @brandedarts for bringing me in to draw all over this wall! : @rockedit718_310 // using @montana_colors acrylic marker in shock black 2w

art_report Street artist MADSTEEZ, in collaboration with Turnaround Arts: California, Branded Arts and Citizen AOL, completed a mural of Martin Luther King Jr. in Compton on Friday, January 15th. With helping hands from students at King Elementary, the layers of paint eventually revealed a masterpiece of the face for whom their school was named and the concept for which he was most famous. DREAM is preached at the viewer as MLK’s eyes does exactly so, directed upwards and out of the confines of the mural at an American flag and the California sky.
