Ok, there was debate on even doing the old “about us” thing since they pretty much all sound the same and who really reads this crap anyway… From time to time, just for kicks, I know I do. Black Apple is probably a tad different than you might think so I thought it worth while to do a little two finger typing and shed a little light on what we are about.
I find people seem to have mixed feelings about “Galleries” in general but we actually started many years ago as Urban Art fans and collectors in Los Angeles with diverse backgrounds in arts and entertainment. I think having had that past experience makes our efforts a little unique. Having much international travel over the years, our eyes were opened to a fresh new array of artists, styles and urban art cultures outside of the US which truly captured us. After some time we found that some of our favorite talents were overseas. After many years, we developed personal relationships with the artists through friends, contacts and collecting. It was our desire to expose these artists and their work to Los Angeles and throughout the US that sparked the birth of Black Apple.
I see us as more of a global art lubricant so to speak, than a typical gallery or art event producer. We work with the artists directly and pool our resources to produce events, transport artwork and the artists stateside and secure them high profile permitted, as well as not so permitted, walls. Black Apple produces everything from “Pop-Up” events and “Print Releases” to exhibits and solo shows for both International and local artist in major US cities with emphasis in Los Angeles, New York and Miami’s urban art scene.
We are very humbled and thrilled by the great caliber of talent and sponsors that have reached out to join us in this effort. Most importantly, we appreciate you for being at the core of what makes this all possible. Thank you and enjoy the ride .
