Photos from “The Future is Blight @ LeBasse Projects

Street Art // Friday, April 19, 2013
Last weekend saw the opening of TrustoCorp’s new solo exhibition “The Future is Blight” at LeBasse Projects in Los Angeles. The guerilla art group who are known for a range of polished, occasionally humorous public installations and meticulously fabricated billboards, took on a minimal, more subtle approach displaying work created in a variety of mediums such as sculptures, paintings, work on paper, and prints. Los Angeles’s dichotomy of poverty and wealth was a main focal point of the exhibition and the artists spoke on view towards Los Angeles saying, “Underneath the glossy veneer of tabloid magazines and Hollywood movies, the former middle class is struggling, families are facing poverty and America is slowly becoming a third world country. In the absence of any real help or solid solutions, there is hypocrisy, greed and hopelessness. Through our work, we hope to call attention to this reality, crack a few smiles and hopefully make some people think along the way.”

Having recently taken an abandoned theme park in the desert of California and making it in to a gallery of their work, TrustCorp, is now moving indoors for an exhibition entitled “The Future Is Blight” that opens April 13 at LeBasee Projects in Los Angeles. Speaking on this exhibition, “Underneath the glossy veneer of tabloid magazines and Hollywood movies, the former middle class is struggling, families are facing poverty and America is slowly becoming a third world country. In the absence of any real help or solid solutions, there is hypocrisy, greed and hopelessness. Through our work, we hope to call attention to this reality, crack a few smiles and hopefully make some people think along the way."

  An abandoned theme park located somewhere in the desert of California, received a face life from the artist collective, TrustoCorp. Looks like a whole lot of fun with nobody around to worry about.

TrustoCorp for Rock the Vote

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 30, 2012
As you may know by now, or even purchased and received in the mail, Juxtapoz celebrated the Election season by releasing our November 2012 Art & Politics Issue. Featured in said issue was TrustoCorp, who not only had an exhibition at The Outsiders this Fall, but also just created art for the Rock The Vote campaign (aka, getting young people to get out and vote this November).

Issue Preview: November 2012 Art & Politics curated by Ron English

Juxtapoz // Monday, October 08, 2012
'Tis the season. No, we don't mean holiday cheer, we mean the Political Season, a time of undecideds, debates, and campaign trails. Juxtapoz is in a similar mood, and we brought legendary fine artist and political satirist Ron English to our November 2012 issue to have him curate our special examination of Politics & Art in 2012.

God Hates People Who Hate People

New York-based public artists, Trustocorp, are spot on with this bus bench advertisement. The collective has been altering and replacing advertisements for sometime, adding a little humor and wit into each piece. This piece in particular gave us chuckle.
