“Graffiti to me has pretty much ruined the world,” said David Lynch recently and that’s when we took Lynch off that pedestal we held him up on for so long. “It’s ruined it for film. When you go to a place to film, everything is graffitied so if you don’t want it, you have to paint it out. So much great architecture is graffitied over, so many great train stations, factories, are graffitied over, and it’s a horrible, horrible thing. Trees have gone away and graffiti has taken their place,” Lynch says.

Ironlak Paint, The Seventh Letter, and Rhymesayers and CO Exhibitions proudly announce an exhibit of paintings, prints, photographs, and other new original artwork from some of the nation’s top graffiti artists. This show began as a follow-up to 2014’s wildly popular Understand What I’m Sprayin’ show at CO. Like its predecessor, Seasons in the Abyss focuses on the work of Twin Cities graffiti crew Heavy Metal with the expanded scope of including the featured artists from Soundset’s Live Painting wall.
