Israeli street artist Know Hope’s Los Angeles solo debut “the times won’t save you (this rain smells of memory)” (previewed) opened to a packed house at the Carmichael Gallery. Patrons were in awe with his intricate gallery installation echoing the¬†theme of the show, which was comprised of cardboard buildings, his signature characters, paper raindrops and¬†fishing twine. Equally as impressive was Know Hope’s latest series of works, which featured a free-form poem of sorts, with a powerful coupling of words and images of his characters in various heart-heavy situations.

Know Hope was kind enough to hand-touch and sign a few copies of his “The Anytimes” newspaper supplement for AM readers. More on how to get your hands on this and all the photos from the show after the jump…
