I received the stuff below from Culver City’s ThinkSpace Gallery, about a cool street art project at another gallery located a few miles away in Venice. It’s pretty cool stuff, and worth checking out before it closes during the holiday weekend. Enjoy.
‘Street Art Saved My Life: 39 New York Stories’ opens to rave reviews"Street Art Saved My Life isn’t just street art in a gallery - Harrington and Rojo asked artists to play off of their street art to contribute fine art works that use a variety of mediums and work in the no-context space of a gallery. This yielded a surprisingly thoughtful and earnest outcome: in an artistic culture known for its focus on anarchic self-expression, it is surprising to see that so many pieces in the exhibit comment on serious social issues in an immediate way." - LA Weekly
On view through this Sunday, September 4th
Thinkspace Gallery, one of my more favorite art outlets in town, is doing a show that opens this weekend in Venice, at a DIFFERENT gallery, the Cave, focused on how “Street Art Saved My Life.” I’ve pasted below the stuff they’re sending out. May be worth the trek to the Westside for the Friday night opening or beyond.
Brooklyn Street Art presents Street Art Saved My Life : 39 New York Stories in collaboration with Thinkspace, an art show to exhibit at C.A.V.E. Gallery in Venice (LA), California opening this Friday, August 12th.

Presented by Brooklyn Street Art in collaboration with Thinkspace andC.A.V.E. Gallery and curated by Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo ofBrooklynStreetArt.com
Street Art Saved My Life : 39 New York Stories heralds the new highly individual character of stories being told on the streets of New York by brand new and established Street Artists from all over the world. Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo, founders of BrooklynStreetArt.com focus on this flashpoint in modern Street Art evolution by curating a strongly eclectic story-driven gallery show with 39 of the best storytellers hitting the streets of New York.
Street Art Saved My Life : 39 New York Stories, the gallery show, accompanied by an LA street wall series by selected artists and a public panel lecture and discussion, intends to stake out the New Guard in street art while recognizing some powerful near-legendary forerunners.
The mainly New York lineup exhibits talent from other parts of the US and internationally (Australia, France, UK, Canada, Israel, Germany) and it is as steely, idiosyncratic and storied as the New York scene itself, including Anthony Lister, Adam Void, Broken Crow, C215, Cake, Chris Stain, Clown Soldier, Creepy, Dan Witz, El Sol 25, Ema, Faile, Futura, Gaia, Gilf!, Hargo, Hellbent, How & Nosm, Imminent Disaster, Indigo, Kid Acne, Know Hope, Ludo, Mark Carvalho, Miss Bugs, Nick Walker, NohJColey, Over Under, Radical!, Rene Gagnon, Skewville, Specter, Sweet Toof, Swoon, Tip Toe, Troy Lovegates AKA Other, Various & Gould, and White Cocoa.
The staunch individualists in Street Art Saved My Life : 39 New York Stories give voice to the evolution of the Graffiti, Mash-Up, and D.I.Y. movements that birthed them; creating an eccentric, highly individual, and raucous visual experience on the street. With widely varied backgrounds, techniques, and materials at play, “The Story” is the story. With truths as diverse and difficult as the city itself, each one of these artists is a part of a fierce, raw, new storytelling tradition that is evolving daily before our eyes.
Thank you all for the continued support! We hope to see you this Friday over in Venice at the C.A.V.E. Gallery,
Andrew & the Thinkspace family
