West coast graffiti legend SABER (interviewed) recently stopped by the Big Apple to showcase a new body of work at Opera Gallery. Taking another step in his abstraction style, the street titan created a series that was quite moving with paintings that blurred the boundaries between sharp & tactical and smooth & strategic. Certain pieces focused on the razor sharp corners coming off exquisite line-work whereas other works drew you in with their muted and buffed textures hinting gently at a subtle vision that lies beneath. Overall, it was a noticeable change of pace from his last show in NYC, which focused more on his iconic flag play. Check out a look at the opening night action below.
