Do you enjoy trains and graffiti or both of them together? If so, Baltimore-based artist, Tim Conlon will be exhibiting life-size aerosol paintings of aged freight cars and weathered model trains featuring scaled-to-size graffiti this Saturday at The Seventh Letter Flagship Store and Gallery. We’ve seen some of Conlon’s paintings in person and his renderings are of the highest quality.

Bom.k has always been one of a kind in France’s Graffiti scene. One only has to look at his drawings, canvases and walls to be convinced. Born and raised in Paris southern suburbs, self though by necessity, he developed his unique style in the streets and abandoned factories of his youth. Quickly, he set himself free from Graffiti’s traditional rules, to follow his own road and create a unique universe, full of distorted monsters, screaming flesh, hybrid sexual creatures, claustrophobic cities and hellish visions.

The Seventh Letter’s flagship store and gallery opened last week, we stopped by the grand opening and it was quite the event. As you may know from our past with the Seventh Letter crew and brand, we had an entire issue dedicated to them in July 2007, and have extensively covered exhibitions at Known Gallery in LA over the years. That said, this store is long, long overdue, and we are so happy they got the flagship up and running!!! Hope you enjoy the photos.

Temperatures plummeted and the cold evening turned abruptly white at Known Gallery in Los Angeles last Saturday the 16th. Who would imagine that the Temple of Wolfbat would hold court in such stark brightness? Dante Ross curated this latest parade of McNett’s trademark characters, choosing to highlight their ferocity on the high walls, giving each creature enough space to guard their territory...
