Check out this bad ass new time lapse courtesy of MBD Films from Saler and 7 others who came by the Graff Lab and threw down on the Saturday before Super Bowl, putting up a huge new elaborate piece in a matter of hours. Good job, guys. The Super Bowl party on Sunday was a big hit. Thanks to all the artists who dropped by and especially to Ricky Guerrero for hosting.
So as everyone knows who’s ever been to the Graff Lab, there is a radio / ghetto box blaster at the yard but no TV at the Graff Lab… until tomorrow. That’s right, Ricky Guerrero is hosting a Super Bowl party @ the Graff Lab tomorrow where there will be a TV as well as some fried chicken. So if you want to watch some football or commercials or just want to paint some walls, come on down to the Graff Lab tomorrow — February 6th — Super Bowl Sunday and enjoy! Also be sure to check out Daysi Garcia’s 2011 Levi’s Girl Contest Video. Daysi is a regular at the Graff Lab and a bunch of it was shot on location. Spread the love and help her dream come true.
Check out the new music video “WOW” by the Marvel Inc crew. The Marvel Inc have been training and performing at the Graff Lab for years now, and we are excited for their success. The video was shot entirely on location at the world famous Graff Lab. The Lab is available for your next video shoot for $1,500 per day. Contact Ricky Guerrero at 213-8588-2233 for more details.
Since July producer-director Rory Owen Delaney has been working on a documentary about The Graff Lab, the Pico Union Housing Corporation and life in downtown Los Angeles. At the center of the film are Ricky Guerrero and Gloria Farias whose enterprising programs and teamwork have been uplifting the Pico-Union community for years. By empowering local taggers, skaters and jerks to create art, dance, music and small businesses, Ricky and Gloria aim to include the Pico-Union district in the gentrification of downtown LA while still maintaining their community’s distinct identity.
Delaney’s previous documentary “Toxic Soup” was recently acquired by The Documentary Channel and was an official selection of the 2010 Atlanta Film Festival, New Jersey Film Festival, Twin Cities Film Festival, Louisville International Festival of Film, the KahBang Film Festival and the American Conservation Film Festival, among others. Delaney is currently editing a trailer for the upcoming Graff Lab documentary. In the meantime he has posted some graffiti time lapses shot at the world famous Graff Lab on his vimeo and youtube profiles. The first time lapse features German graffiti artist Jason Holloway and LA-based Aldo. The second time lapse features California graffiti artists Serk and Savager.
