Rivera & Rivera Gallery, relatively new to the LA contemporary scene, opens an exciting installation of work by Retna this evening. The graffiti artist’s trademark typography fills the space, covering walls and carpets, creating an immersing experience of his multi-sourced style. Retna primarily draws from hieroglyphics and street tagging, his lettering designed to be read in both English and Spanish.
For the gallery, this showing is also a way to, in short, go out with a bang. The final exhibition at their current location, it will pave the way for a new space opening this Fall in Los Angeles’ downtown art district.
Rivera & Rivera, 1100 S. Hope Street, Los Angeles, CA.
