Piece Fest @ the Graff Lab

Last weekend the Graff Lab was host to the 1st annual Piece Fest, a music and art fest in combination with a graffiti battle for "The Chosen One," a reality TV pilot executive produced by actor David Arquette. I was there documenting the event for the Graff Lab Movie documentary that has been in production since June 2010. LA's OG Abel faced off with The Massive, who flew halfway around the world from Australia to compete in the live graffiti battle. Among the judges were pro snowboarder Danny "Dingo" Kass, actor David Faustino and musician Shifty from Crazytown. It was great to see so many people come out to the event. Saler came through, Moezart, Keve, Seze, Po3ms, and many more. http://www.flickr.com//photos/manbitesdog/sets/72157631806689760/show/

Graff Lab Movie Photos

Been taking a lot more still photos now that I have a Canon 7d. I took these photographs on Saturday, 3/24/12 at the Graff Lab. I have some more photos that I took on Sunday, 3/25/12 but I haven't had a chance to deal with them yet. I got the completed mural and a bunch more shots of some of the big pieces that I hadn't gotten due to cars being parked in front of them. On Saturday there was a British musician there all day shooting his music video. Not sure who it was. Anyone know who the guy is? He's holding a guitar and wearing a blazer in a few of the photos. Also, the Canon 7d came in really handy when I walked a couple blocks down Venice toward the Staples Center and ended up getting free tacos in exchange for taking a couple pictures. The tacos were the bomb; thank you, Mystery Taco Lady! http://www.flickr.com//photos/manbitesdog/sets/72157629392848986/show/
