Preview: Uglar Paints a Billboard for LA Freewalls "Public Works" Show
In preparation for the Public Works show at LALA Gallery opening tomorrow, Friday August 3rd, Uglar painted a beautiful 15′ x 50′ mural that combines their skills in murals, tattoos, and fine art. This groundbreaking two-part exhibit, a collaboration with LA Freewalls and MacDonald Media to benefit Art Share LA, features murals by renowned contemporary artists in one of public media’s most controversial spaces – the billboard. Contributing artists include How & Nosm, Insa, Push, Revok, Risk, Ron English, Seen, Shepard Fairey, Trustocorp, WCA Crew, Uglar, and Zes.
The first part of the exhibit will feature the murals up-close-and-personal at LALA Gallery from August 3 to 17. The murals will then be on display on billboards throughout Los Angeles on a rotating basis during the next year. Stay tuned for a full recap of the exhibition including the complete collection of billboards painted for the occasion.
