Official Press Release:

“Two Well-Known LA Graffiti Artisits Collaborate In An Unexpected Synthesis”

CACHE and AISEborn (ArtIsSelfExpression) have painted murals all over the city. Although the two differ more than stylistically, their collaboration reveals a commonality that goes beyond the human barriers and into the realms of spirit.

OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, December 9, 2017 6pm – 10pm

The artists known as Cache and AiseBorn will show a series of collaborative works in a show aptly titled, Synthesis. Cache’s playful and colorful chicken murals can be spotted on nearly every street corner around the city, while AiseBorn’s massive and impressive mandalas reside in the streets as well as museums.

At first glance, no one would guess two artists would find a common ground artistically. Cache’s cartoon-like characters come in bright, geometric, playful forms, while AiseBorn works with intricate brush strokes and realistic imagery. It was an unexpected yet organically natural union when these two found themselves sharing a mural space after an introduction by their mutual friend, another well-known graffiti artist, Atlas.
“When we come together, we influence each other in unexpected ways. AiseBorn’s work pushes me to flex my other styles; playing with futuristic linear forms and light and shadows.”, says Cache

The show will take place at TONALLI STUDIO in East Los Angeles or “Old Town Maravilla”, a gallery space owned and operated by long time residents and artists, Ofelia Esparza and her daughter Rosanna Esparza Ahrens. Cache and AiseBorn were drawn to the space because of its focus on wellness and community. For the first time, the two artist collaborative works will come together in a new formation on gallery walls. Synthesis will be on exhibit until January 6, 2018.

Rest in Paint SERCH UTI STP RTDK RTH


RIP OG SERCH UTI, STP, RTDK, RTH

On Saturday, November 11, 2017 between 12am-7am. Our brother Eric Serch Ginsburg passed away in his sleep. As many of us knew he was epileptic since childhood; it is probable he had a massive seizure during his sleep.-UTI Crew. I pray his exit was painless and he is resting now for he was taken away too soon, leaving behind his son, brother, mother and the entire Los Angeles Graffiti Movement, his crews and hundreds of friends and fans of Serch All City King! It is difficult to sit here and write about a great friend, a genuine person that always found a way to make you crack up; even in the most unexpected places and moments, you had to have a special kind of humor to be able to hang with Serch. He was blunt, straight to the point, our boy had no filter but yet respectful, always kind to our children and families; he was loved and welcomed everywhere! Never too busy to hit your books, hook you up with his King Slaps; or bust a flow right on sight. It is hard to find OG’s keeping it 100% 24/7. This harsh reality has placed a financial necessity on his family and close friends, with the deepest sincerity I ask of you to please assist monetarily or any other way on this time of need.

Ancient Civilizations, Art & Music Festival

 What’s Up San Anto, it was great visiting this cultural enriched and heart warming city! Graffiti Heaven, industrial landscapes, train tracks and mobbed carts, just some of the surroundings I explored at the Paint Yard while checking out the Ancient Civilizations; Art & Music Festival. The Paint Yard opened its doors in conjunction with Pop Up Texus; an Art market for all the masses with various taste in art, music and fashion. It was a sunny day and as for us being from California, we are not used to this heat but we still managed to mingle with firme people with the same passion for Art & Community. You all did a great job, looking forward to more events in the near future. Until then, Stay Up from Los Angeles to San Antonio.

Much love & respect,

Monica Smiles Tobon
