Los Angeles, CA, May 10, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Today Ironlak Los Angeles, a premier boutique for Australian spray paints, has announced the dates for CLICK CLACK, a post-graffiti art showcase. The two-part exhibit opens at Ironlak Los Angeles on May 19th, and again on June 16th, and will feature works from renowned graffiti duo DAME and TRAV.
DAME, a prolific graffiti writer and contemporary artist from Los Angeles, has been painting in the streets for more than 20 years. He is among the longest-standing members of internationally renowned AWR and MSK crews. DAME’s graffiti pieces are a kaleidoscope of color and shapes, reflecting a myriad of inspirations. DAME’s collectible art, derived from his street work, is often rendered in spray paint, acrylic and several coats of high-gloss resin.

TRAV, a habitual daydreamer since childhood, has always had a focus on making art. Graffiti began to take over TRAV’s life in 1997. Apathetic to formal education, TRAV dropped out of school to discover opportunities within the world of graffiti. In 2001, TRAV joined The Seventh Letter and MSK. TRAV’s style of work is a digital, yet organic fusion of text and textures.
CLICK CLACK, co-presented by The Seventh Letter - an international collective of artists, uniquely explores the relationship between graffiti and fine art, and gives a new life to street graffiti.
Exhibit curator Emerald Brooke explains, “The purpose of the CLICK CLACK shows is to examine graffiti - an art form that may traditionally only be viewed in person or in photos, which also has an undetermined life in the public realm - and give it a new, longer-lasting life in a completely new context.”
In addition to the gallery exhibit, the first CLICK CLACK opening will feature musical performances and sets by Mr. Chinn, Virgill, Sunny Phono, DJ Neu Girl of Melbourne, Australia, and Exile and Johaz as Dag Savage aka Dirty Science.
