LA Contraband Nov 9th 2013 by Slidely Slideshow
We also want to thank our great Honorable Mayor Eric Garcetti for his endorsement of Black Apple Gallery, LA Contraband and Urban Art Culture not only here in Los Angeles but world wide.
PROVIDING THE SOUNDTRACK FOR THIS UNIQUE VISUAL EXPERIENCE IS DJ SHY
At this point your probably hoping it’s a sleep-over event and while we considered it for a sec, due to legal, moral and just plain common sense we opted to work on it for our next event.
ON THE SLIM CHANCE YOU ARE NOT GAZING AT ART EVERY SECOND…
LA CONTRABAND 2013 Is honored to have QUEEN ESTHER as our guest mixologist for the evening
LA CONTRABAND is a unique and exclusive urban art event unlike any other that has ever hit Los Angeles! Black Apple Gallery will present some of the very top and most sought after urban talents from Norway, the UK and Australia to show their original works for the very first time in Los Angeles; and for some, the very first time in the U.S. These cutting edge creative forces are well known world-wide. Their works are in high demand and even shorter supply. Most all of their creations adorn urban walls from London and Paris to Australia and Japan, with the even rarer canvas and print works having been snatched up literally minutes after their release. Practically none of this amazing work has ever seen the shores of the U.S. let alone Los Angeles… Until now.
The main goal of this event is to bring the work of these amazing talents to the true fans of the work and to the eyes of those who would normally never get the chance to ever see it at all. This one night only event will feature one of LA’s top DJs providing the sound track to this unique visual experience and an open bar featuring Glenfiddich & Monkey Shoulder whisky, Hendrick’s Gin and Reyka Vodka. Enjoy it straight up or have a specially crafted selection by our mixologists. Some of the artists will also be creating limited edition prints, exclusive to this LA event, which will be available at the venue. As you can see, this will truly be an exciting historic event and if you are reading this then you have the unique opportunity to be an integral part of it. Above is a current list of the artists that will be featured as of this update and the list has been growing as the date grows closer. Some of these artists will actually be in LA for the very first time leaving their marks throughout Los Angeles and very possibly attending the event anonymously.
Miss this one and you’ll cry yourself to sleep for the rest of the year.
