There will be painting live on canvas and concrete walls to an audience of 1000-1,500 people from all walks of life.
The West Coast Graffiti Party’s focus is large scale live graffiti works by the best of the best which will also feature framed art works and photography by some of LA’s best Graffiti artists and photographers such as Eriberto Oriol, Create RTN, Frame, and many more. The patio at the Crash Mansion will be alive with colors and aerosol magic. CES one, Risk, Toofly, Ezra, and Carlos “MARE” Rodriguez are our featured graffiti artists this year. Everyone wants to be part of the West Coast Graffiti Party as it’s organized by one of Los Angeles Graffiti Legend Frame DTK, therefore we expect special guest performers to show up and show love from well known MC’s, DJ’s, BBOYS, and BBGIRLS. In addition, most youth today really love to express themselves through many different mediums. The most popular today is spray paint. Unfortunately there are very few to NO PROGRAMS available for young artists to express themselves to create aerosol murals in the City of Los Angeles, which is known to be the Mural Capital of the World.
Our event will be a great opportunity to prove to the Media, the public at large, and officials that graffiti is more than just vandalism. It will also be a great opportunity to create dialogue. WCGP will show what is possible IF given the chance to be free to create. Hopefully this event can give an opportunity for future programs and access to walls for our youth to be free to create murals in and around our City.
