This time last year graffiti artist Saber hired five jet planes to fly over the skies of Los Angeles to bring awareness to the masses of the mural moratorium here in this great city. SABER’s passion and ambition has now brought him to another cause: Informing us about presidential hopeful Mitt Romey’s desire to eliminate funding for The National Endowment for the Arts, PBS and NPR if elected. Saber is setting up is donation plan now, and participants will receive thank you gifts, along with knowing that they have helped keep the arts alive in America. You can read more about Saber’s plans here.
In 1997 Saber completed the largest graffiti piece ever created. Over 100 yards long, it covered a portion of the sloping cement wall alongside the Los Angeles River, and took over a month of working at night and 97 gallons of paint to complete. Saber began showing his art in galleries in 2002, and in 2011, Saber’s solo show, “The American Graffiti Artist” opened in New York to great acclaim. Additionally, Saber’s art was featured in two museum exhibitions, “Street Cred” at the Pasadena Museum of California Art and MoCA Los Angeles’s blockbuster “Art in the Streets.”
