Survive – An Art Exhibition

Pop Up Gallery
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.
