Bezt represents half of the dynamic street art duo, Etam Cru, a project with collaborator and fellow artist Sainer. Together, they bring to life gigantic murals that cover entire sides of high-rise buildings that are filled with dark whimsy and fantastical characters. Their work essentially put Polish street art on the map! While making incredible work together, they also work on their own projects. 1AM Gallery is pleased to announce that we will be featuring some of Bezt’s mind-boggling work in an upcoming show curated by Poesia. Check out this painting by Bezt followed by one of Etam Cru’s many, MANY murals!
Last Wednesday we had an awesome Yelp field trip, doing free T-shirt stenciling, spray practice, and live painting as guests enjoyed some Snakebite beers and wine.

1AM is pleased to announce that we will be showing the internationally acclaimed street artist Eduardo Kobra. The show will be opening December (stay tuned for opening date!). As he is a world-renowned mural artist, chances are you’ve heard of Kobra or seen his work before. But just in case you haven’t, here’s a little tidbit about the São Paulo-based artist. Eduardo and his crew, Studio Kobra, travel the world designing and producing vibrant large-scale murals that reflect the history of the city they represent. The historical images in his murals are sourced from vintage photos which Eduardo finds in the local library archives. With each mural Eduardo aims to “recreate a city that no longer exists, so people who didn’t live in that time can see it and those who did live back then can have a moment of memory or nostalgia.” – Quote by Eduardo Kobra during an interview on Artmiami.tv.
Check out some of his work below. And if that’s not enough, you can find more on his Flickr page.

Facebook came by with a team of 27 to dive into the world of street art last week. They had a happy hour while creating custom T-shirts and busting out a huge mural on our outside wall that says “White Space, Not Red Tape”! We hope to see you guys again soon! Read More »
