Original works by 25 urban artists from Los Angeles, New York, UK, Italy and more will be on display in Washington, DC for a month long exhibition titled Above the Radar III. Above the Radar III is curated by Luna George, a Los Angeles based Urban Art Curator, and will bring together a hybrid of realism, street art, abstract art, graffuturism, 3rd dimensional work, typography, illustration, collaborative artwork, surrealism and traditional graffiti to evoke the colors, shapes and styles of that which is found in urban art today. Above the Radar III encourages the viewer to examine intricate lines, brightly hued & vibrant colors that fuse the urban painting aesthetic. On display as well, alluring eyes, tattooed bodies & debauchery to incorporate within this stunning selection of paintings, illustrations and sculptures.
A highlight to Above the Radar III, is an installation focusing on contrast and bursts of color painted by Col (New York) featuring hand built wood pieces with abstract silhouettes of letters which will work their way throughout the wall and on top of the wooden pieces.
Also as a highlight to exhibition, the original work by Mark Bode, prodigy of Vaughn Bode, whose characters are a continuing legacy of his fathers and work is a quintessential part of graffiti, just like the arrow, the drip and the white shine.
With the 3rd dimensional work traveling from Italy and Los Angeles, the collaborative painting of a maniacal character by Mice of Millions (LA) on top of an insanely intricate, hyper abstract Photo of Defer by PhotoJenInc explosion of color painted by Thanks One (LA), the work travelling from UK by Inkie, the explosive graffuturism works by Defer (LA) and Kofie (LA) as well as all other original works by the remaining exhibiting artists, Above the Radar III will be an exhibition special to the urban art aficionados of Washington, DC.
