California based street artists Apex, Chor Boogie, and Jet Martinez will create new temporary murals inside the Warehouse Gallery. The work is based on improvisation, collaboration, and the notion that how and what they paint is recognizably Californian in its focus on strong colors, patterns, forms, and nature.
Their language consists of colorful abstract forms pertaining to optical illusions and movement, faces, evoking real and imaginary urban settings, and tropical imaginary landscapes. All three of them have significantly contributed to public art in San Francisco, San Diego, and other major cities within (Minneapolis; Washington D.C.) and outside of the United States (Beijing; Dubai; Oaxaca; Sydney; Tokyo; Zurich) through their use of spray (Apex; Chor) and traditional paint (Jet Martinez) to achieve elaborate compositions with high attention to detail.
Additional support for the exhibition is provided by Tucker B. Culbertson and the Delavan Center, Inc. Organized in conjunction with the Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration.
