1. To live. To remain alive.
2. To live through. To outlive.
3. To carry on despite hardships; or the death of a loved one.
from Latin, supervivere, super ‘over, beyond’ + vivere ‘to live’; or ‘to live beyond’.
SURVIVE is an exhibition featuring a conceptually coherent and significant, original body of work by emerging artists of the L.A. based graffiti crews LTS KOG: SINER, FISHE, DREYE, KYLE THOMAS, and NATHAN SMITH.
The exhibition will feature 36 3×4 ft. canvasses. The artists work from the same flat monochromatic palette mixing ink, acrylic, markers, brush, rollers, and spray paint.
Their abstract work on the street translates directly across surfaces, textures, and contexts onto the canvass. The fearless originality and brutal honesty of their works create a dramatic composition that reflects an aggressive obsession with technique and medium. The works’ distinctively raw aesthetic results in something chaotic, yet beautiful.
SURVIVE has consciously chosen Detroit to follow up the New Orleans’ debut of their traveling exhibition to provoke a dialogue on the transformative power of art. Inviting street culture purveyors and art audiences to the showcase of emerging artists in a formerly vacant structure, and now transformed ‘pop-up’ gallery space, the concept, the process, and the art reinforce the purpose: SURVIVE.

What’s better than one vest? A vest that can be worn on both sides. Why are adjustable camera straps great? Because they can be worn around the neck, over the shoulder, across the body, etc. Versatility is what I admire and what both of the products showcased in this post offer! Remember: your money goes further when every item you purchase can be worn/used in
The Grylls Vest by GPPR ($140) can be worn on the red side for a bright pop of color accented by a striped pocket. Pair with a button down or hoodie in contrasting color. (also pictured: X-Large Get Sprayed Tee ($36) and the Herschel Heritage Bag ($60))

Powell is best known for visually capturing the heart of New York’s downtown scene during the 1980’s from artist, musicians, graffiti writers and downtown taste makers! He truly captured the urban revolution that sparked below 14th street during this era.
