*RECAP* Friends With Knives @ Crewest Gallery

Hello...

This past weekend, the Nasty Crew hit the road once again, to visit several art galleries in La La Land. We left Nasty City a little past 5 and we felt refreshed after the good ole "sleep in till noon" type Saturdays. We were off, but stopped abruptly by our old friend: traffic.

After a lovely time in LA traffic, we finally made it to our first destination: "Friends With Knives" @ Crewest Gallery....a stencil show featuring some of the best stencil artists including Blek le Ra, Broken Crow, Chris Stain, Dave Lowell, E.L.K, Greg Boudreau, HAHA, Henry Quiara, Joe Iurato, Koleszar, Leckomio, Mefee, Nathan Phaneuf, PaperMonster, Peat Wollaeger, Scotch, Shai Dahan and the legend himself, Chaz Bojorquez.

There was a buzz in the air...unfortunately there wasn't any alcohol.

Remember the part in Anchor Man, but here they're wearing storm trooper helmets.

The different textures from the cracks on the face to the ruffled hair, created by intricate details make this one of my favorite pieces at the show...it's amazing what people can do with an xacto blade, cardboard and spray paint.

There was a sweet yet disgusting smell in the air. I love LA....but I love the Nasty much more.
