Holy Names University spends the morning tagging!

High school students from Holy Names University‘s summer program stopped by 1AM bright and early to practice sketching out their new graffiti writer names and paint a mural with our teacher. Opting to produce their mural on canvas so that they could bring it home with them, the group ultimately chose to inscribe the uplifting message of “Speak up!” across their canvas and it ended up looking aesthetically inspiring as well!

CAMER1: “Taking Flight” Mural

Fresh off the runway, CAMER1’sTake Flight” mural hit the 1AM gallery walls this week for the exhibit’s opening reception. The mural emphasizes the aesthetic of flying forms and it highlights the idea that the weightlessness of flight is similar to the connection an artist has with his or her art. With an awesome mashup of talents in this show, it’s no question that CAMER1 and the other artists brought their work to new heights. We’re excited to see CAMER1’s art taking off and we encourage you to check out the mural for yourself.

Behind the Scenes – “Take Flight” with CAMER1

Flying into the gallery and throwing up fresh paint, the “Take Flight” artists, Agana, Annie Preece, CAMER1, and Ivan “Gath” Preciado, took their art off the canvas and onto 1AM’s gallery walls. The gallery has transformed with each artist’s addition and now the space is ready to take off. Each wall reflects these artist’s unique talents and extends the depth of their work. Watch CAMER1 talk about his inspiration for the idea behind “Take Flight” in the video above. Come meet the artists, enjoy incredible art, and see the gallery transformed! We’re ready to take flight and we’re excited to see you on March 12th for the opening reception at 6:30 – 9:30pm.

Vertical gets into graff!

Learning how to both perfect their graffiti writer tag using markers and spray paint on a plastic wall we engineered outside, an early-rising team from Vertical took 1AM by storm. While they didn’t choose to take a canvas mural home with them to their office, they did however help paint an old-school mural outside with the phrase “Just like that” boldly emblazoned across it, which ultimately turned out great.

Viator makes their mark at the gallery!

Viator may send its customers traveling around the world, but they were clearly at home spray painting and tagging at 1AM. The team chose to produce their mural on canvas so that they could take it back to their office to showcase and they asked for the phrase “Travel with an insider” to anchor the mural!

If you’ve strolled by 6th and Howard Street this past week you will have seen the incredible murals up for our newest show, Inamorata.
