Recap: West One’s ‘Freedom Suite’ Opening at Environment LA
The 12oz team was on hand at last night’s opening of West One‘s “Freedom Suite” at Environment LA. West was one of the most prominent writers through the end of the subway graffiti movement. His crew, Fame City, was recognized for their strong letters and clean lines. West layers his draftsman-like line, learned through studying the architecture of letters, over ethereal painterly backgrounds. He focuses on shapes formed by the overlapping lines in each painting, filling them in and lifting them to the surface, creating rhythm and depth.
