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

Recap of the Cannabis Show @ Infinity Room!

On January 28th, Paul Stewart and Over the Edge Gallery kicked off the year with the Cannabis Art Show which was located at the infamous Infinity Room in conjunction with Delicious Pizza located at 5413 West Adams Blvd. Los Angeles Califas.

Paul Stewart  partnered up with major Cannabis companies in the industry to bring to the public a massive line up of artists, Graffiti artists and special DJ appearances.  Along this collaboration show featured a heavy hitter artist line up with OG Slick, Michael Miller, Eric “Cre8” Walker, Keo, Lauralee Benjamin, Petal, Jennifer Korsen, Mr. Trixter, Sanecorner, Somehoodlum, Adria Cruel, Xistheweapon, Style One, WizRok, Gas, Sebastien Walker, The MadTwiinz, Phever, Bihno, Antonio and Isaac Pelayo.

This was an excited event for me as it was my first time working along with OG Paul Stewart, coming up with a fresh Cannabis theme along the beautiful and talented Tasha Nguyen who was in charge of all the DOPE vendors. If you attended this event then you all agree with me that the dopest part of the event was walking thru the back of the Infinity Room to the spot of vendors such as TGD, PotRocks, Legion of Bloom, Stonedgamers which was a popular hit with the public that night! It was a surreal experience to see all the Cannabis themed vendors, pastries, drinks, video games, bong hits, and dope vinyl records while listening to fresh DJ’s throughout the night; the final thought: Oh shit, this is really happening in Cali, Smoke Up!

Big Ups to our Fresh Los Angeles Hip Hop Heads, Cannabis Vendors, Artists, the Sponsors PBR, photographer E5D Zine for some of these great moments captured. Shout out to my fam from Cholos Try, Scar and Irene, thank you guys for always coming thru to show love and support. Here’s to more nights Up in Smoke, Tunes, Arte and Good People. Waddup Sista HailStorm, Petal, Gas, Wizrok, OG Cre8, Lea, My Mija Tatyana Ali,Korsen who stole the space in the Infinity Room with her massive Cannabis Art Piece which was used throughout the night as a backdrop. Just to show you that when creative genuine people get together, unforgettable events like this happen.

Much Love & Respect,

Monica Smiles Tobon
