A little late notice, but tonight in Los Angeles, MSK brothers RETNA (featured) and ZES will be opening a show together at the Known Gallery. Introduced in their youth by their mutual friend AYER, ZES and RETNA led parallel lives through an upbringing in graffiti. Translating this shared history into bodies of work, the new pieces are collectively entitled Excavated Revelations.
To give you an idea of what to expect, check out photos taken by AM correspondent Patrick Kawahara of some engraved & hand-finished works on found wood (salvaged from a demolished house) by RETNA. The pieces were produced by Moon Editions in San Francisco (the good people behind the Aaron Horkey True Grit release) and when the planks are merged together, they will form two larger pieces for the show.
