Retna (featured), who we just saw at the Kehinde Wiley show (covered) and at his Hallelujah World Tour in New York, recently created an installation for Factory 413 in Los Angeles as part of their FAIRFAX TITANS project (in conjunction with Known Gallery where an ongoing roster of artists will be asked to work on the large dual-sided window display on Fairfax Ave). The video above shows some footage of the calligraphic action as well words from Retna as he discussed some of the philosophies behind his work.
Also, the LA flagship store for Kr3w and Supra will be collaborating with the gallery on releasing a print from Retna as part of the project, preview pics of which you can see after the jump…
