Tonight in Los Angeles, The Seventh Letter Flagship Store and Gallery will be showing a new body of work from Pose, KC Ortiz, Vizie, and Omens. They have worked together collectively for years, so it would make sense they would create a body of work to show as a group. The show, titled “Further/Farther” is a reflection of the collectives influence from psychedelia, youth and popular culture, design, depth, mind-bending colors, and buddhist prayer flags.
