Got to give it up to the creator, the innovator and one of the best dudes I will ever know. I found a box of pictures while cleaning out my garage and figured I would share. Looks like these were snapped ’99-’01. Need to find the next set of flicks when the rollers really started kickin’ in.
If you are unfamiliar with Marco Zamora’s work take a look, its well worth the 5 minutes that you would be using to update your latest wall post. This is a show that is not to be missed. http://www.marcozamora.com

We were commissioned to make this ICE CUBE, our most recent painting. He is 4ft wide by 6ft high. Growing up in Los Angeles we are obviously big time Ice Cube fans. This painting was a lot of fun to make. It’s taken from his early days in N.W.A.

POV Gallery is proud to present Shades of Grey, the first solo exhibition from Dethkills Collective. Evolving from their beginnings in T-shirt printing and graffiti art, Dethkills has made a name for themselves in Los Angeles with their trademark typography layered on larger-than-life paintings. Transcending the boundaries between high art and graffiti, Dethkills creates works addressing everything from social issues to the everyday, all with an intensely creative eye and a handful of Sharpies.
In their inaugural unveiling, Dethkills will display 21 pieces that have been meticulously crafted over the past year. Each piece demonstrates their intricate and unconventional uses of “wet-in-wet” washes and dry brush technique, in conjunction with latex and acrylic paints.
This collection will display a group of works entitled “The 27 Club,” featuring iconic images of musicians and artists, such as Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, who were taken well before their time. Painted in the stark contrast of black and white, these legends are given new life.
The exhibition also includes a series of smaller works that illuminate the intricacies of everyday items, like a phone booth that you pass on your daily route or a box of your grandfather’s medals in the attic; relics of a not so distant, yet highly divergent, past.
The first 100 people at the exhibit will receive a handmade one-of-a-kind Dethkills photozine, with silk-screened cover and silk-screened insert, that showcases the process and progression of each piece in the show from beginning to end.
DJ set by The Blackouts featuring Ako and Atiba Jefferson.
