Saber: Close EncountersFriday, August 3, 2007
Boost Mobile, R77 and Gingko Press hosted a gallery show in San Franciso to showcase the graffiti artist Saber. The title of the gallery was called “Saber: Close Encounters.” This was to recreate pieces of art where the artist has felt close encounters while painting the piece. Of course one of the recreated pieces of work was the LA river piece. Which is the largest painting ever done. Saber ran into lots of different problems before finishing that particular piece. He even blew out one of his knees from the position he had to stand in for so long to paint the river side wall. The gallery show is being held till August 4th at the White Walls Gallery in San Fransisco.
