Last month the Graff Lab hosted a dance tribute to the late great Michael Jackson, which included performances by the L.A. Breakers, Thrill the World Los Angeles, the Pico Union Kids, 93rd Elementary, Crenshaw Heights, Ejame, The Young Marvels and DJ Jess.

Here are some photos from the Lab as well. Be sure to join us on facebook at facebook.com/thegrafflab. We post a ton more pictures there!
A lot of changes have been going at the Graff Lab lately. The USC boxing club is putting the finishing touches on their Graff Lab gym. Ricky is getting the punching bags installed and then things should be pretty much be up and running. Additionally, a ton of new pieces have gone up as well. Take a look at the new face of the Graff Lab at 1038 W. Venice Blvd in Los Angeles.
Here are a bunch of new pictures from March and early April 2011 here at the Graff Lab. We posted a bunch more on our facebook fan page @ facebook.com/grafflab. Ricky is due back from Singapore in the next week so get your cans and sketches ready because we are going to be giving the Graff Lab an overdue facelift.
It’s been over a month since the last post, so thanks for being patient, but a lot has been going on. A couple weeks ago the Graff Lab hosted an event for the folks at City Year who brought their after school class of about 20 to 30 middle schoolers from the surrounding Pico Union neighborhood to the Lab for an art pow-wow. Also we are going to delete the old unofficial facebook page, so be sure to hit us up on our new facebook fan page. We will be posting a bunch more photos on facebook in the future — more than we post here on the website — so definitely “like us” — it will be worth your while. In any event, below you will find a bunch of great new stuff from the likes of Seze, Broak, Aldo and more. Included is also a picture of the cross that Ricky and Lowanna made for Dr. Frank Ryan’s memorial in Malibu in Ventura County. Ricky went down to check on it after six months and it is still in fantastic condition.
A local Los Angeles muscle car club came to the Graff Lab a couple weeks ago to stage some photographs for their website. Here is what they sent us.

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.
Here is some of the new graffiti that went down in our last Saturday, Jan 8th at the Graff Lab. Last weekend was the first weekend that the Graff Lab has been open in 2011 so it was pretty busy. Check out some of what went down. I have a Time Lapse that I need to post from this weekend as well. This should you over until I get a chance to edit and post it.
