For over 15 years Saber has used the urban landscape as a monumental canvas influencing local street art styles the world over. In 1997, Saber painted the world’s largest street art piece on the cement banks of the Los Angeles River. Measuring 250’ x 55’ and using 125 gallons of latex roller paint, this massive expression of raw street power is considered one of the most important pieces in street art history.
Prolific and diverse, Saber’s work extends beyond his street art by catching the attention of the fine art world with his hyper real oil paintings of cityscapes. Saber is also noted for his ability to translate his work into three-dimensional sculptures collected by art aficionados and those that are part of the urban culture scene. Saber’s work has contributed to the advancement of contemporary street art as a legitimate art form extending its reach far beyond its primary roots. For more information, visit www.saberone.com.
