Day 2: Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT Art Tour Hits LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, 11 Sep 2007


After an amazing first day of live painting in San Diego, at both the Agenda Trade Show and Ole Madrid, the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour continued on to Los Angeles. This time, artists Saber, Dave Choe, and Retna, made a stop at Workmen's on Melrose for a day of live installation, autographing books, and even hitting up a signature piece on a couple of willing fans' t-shirts. The evening event was held at Guys Bar on Beverly Blvd where Saber, Choe and Retna did another live installation. The event featured plenty of Sparks as well as live DJ sets by DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill and by DJ Solo. Today they hit up The Krate in Santa Cruz at 3pm (803 Pacific Avenue) and on Thursday, Sept. 13th, look for them in Sacramento at FTC (1006 J Street) at 3pm and at R15 (1431 R Street) at 7:30pm. See below for future stops on the Sparks IGNITE WHAT'S NEXT art tour.
