Coup Street’s For L.A. by L.A. – The GMO Show

Posted on by Jared in EVENTS, For LA by LA | Leave a comment

After a lot of hard work, another For L.A. by L.A. is in the books. This one was called, The GMO Show, with hopes to raise awareness of GMO foods. We had over 25 vendor booths, organic iherb coupon 2014 food , a juice truck, live screen printing, 5 L.A. DJ’s, and 5 of the dopest artists in L.A. painting live under the Cali sun. Tewsr, Mice of Millions, Thanks, Joe Ded, and ZLA put it down for the cause. At the end of the day we raised $1,000 for the Los Angeles Community Garden Council. This money will be able to help them as they continue to provide the streets and communities of Los Angeles with organic produce grown right here in Los Angeles.

We’d like to send a big shout out to McLogan and everyone that came out to support what we’re doing.  As you can tell, we are a heavily art based clothing brand, that likes to work with local artists and the community. Artists are some of the most passionate and outspoken individuals, with a gift of being able to express their message though different mediums. Our goal is to not only create places of passion and inspiration at these shows, but to provide an element of education and giving back. Whether you realize it or not, we all have something in common, and Coup Street’s goal at these shows is to bridge the gap between us as a community. Hopefully you all learned something about GMO’s that you’ll be able to pass on, and maybe even some of you will change your eating habits. The bottom line is, we all have a right to know what we’re eating. If it weren’t for all of you, we couldn’t have raised $1,000 that we will be donating to the Los Angeles Community Garden Council. One of the best ways to fight against GMO’s is to grow your own food. Not only is it the only true way of knowing exactly what you’re eating, but it’s also way of saying, “We don’t need you!” to all the companies and corporations that support it. Thanks again, and we hope to see you at the next show.

Shout out to Paul Alvarez Jr. for the dope photos. You can see the rest of them on our facebook page.

Coup Street Feeds Skid Row at L.A. Mission

Coup Street L.A. Mission Adopt A Meal

Last night, Coup Street and some volunteers fed the homeless during our Adopt-A-Meal donation with the money raised at For L.A. by L.A. First and foremost I’d like to thank everyone that volunteered and helped make it a special night. It was my first time doing something like that, and it definitely wont be the last.

Coup Street L.A. Mission Adopt A MealWe made it an extra special night, by teaming up with our boy Josue Zeta Rojas aka Zeta Photography and displayed photographs from his project, “Skid Row Quotes: Portraits of Hope.” The project is a series of black and white portraits of residents of the Skid Row community.  This was the first time anyone had really seen them, and who better to see them, than the community he took them of? A lot of the faces were recognized by some of the people that ate with us last night.

Tommy and his daughter Mia showed up, along with Billie, Jillian, and David. We started prepping in the kitchen and later on we served Sloppy Joes and potato wedges.

We got a chance to talk with a few of the people that work there, hear their stories, and desires to change their lives around. One of the people I was intrigued by was a man named Ivery. He was very down to earth, and had a good understanding of where he’d been, and the path he’s on now. He said he used to be a tap dancer, and that every now and then, they have a talent show at the mission that he participates in. I’d really like to check it out.

Live Screen Printing at Live Large

Posted on by Jared in EVENTS, News | Leave a comment

LA Canvas threw an event with Hollywood and Highland called Live Large and asked us to do some live screen printing. We did the Carnivale event with them last year, and our designs were a big hit. This time around, we connected with a few more artists, to screen print some of their designs, and help get their printer kopen and art out to the public. We reached out to Darel C, the creator of LiHai clothing, Jennifer Korsen, and of course our boy Danny Mateo. The larger portion of the event was to showcase art that was made by several artists and their interpretation of the Highlands Elephant. All in all, it was a great night, and a lot of fun. Thanks again to Danny Mateo, Jennifer Korsen and Darel Carey for My Personalised Clothing designs and McLogan for the sponsorship!

Once again we set up at the Beat Swap Meet in Chinatown. Always great vibes. We had our “Fight For Your Farms” shirt on sale for the first time (a DweebKid x Coup Street collabo), which was a big hit. Good to know the awareness of GMO’s is getting around. See you all at the next on in September.

For L.A. by L.A. – Recap

Posted on by Jared in EVENTS, News | Leave a comment

First off, we just want to give a big thank you to McLogan for letting us use their location, and giving us the chance to throw something amazing. Secondly, a big thank you to all the artists that donated their time and skills to paint on the wall. It was incredible seeing all of them and all their different styles, side by side. We also want to thank the DJ’s for the great music, all of our sponsors, and all the brands that came out to be apart of our first show. We had about 600 people show up that donated cans, or cash to the L.A. Mission. By the end of the day, we raised $1,018 and over 300 cans of food. These photos wont be able to do the experience of the day justice, so if you missed the incredible vibe, you’ll have to come out next time. You can see all of the photos on our Facebook Page. Where we are trying to buy twitter followers constantly to increase our fan base.

Slap Ya Mama & Copro Gallery Futurology

Posted on by Jared in EVENTS, News | Leave a comment

Last night we hit up the Slap Ya Mama Sticker Exchange & Art Show that we participated in. It was tight being amongst a community of sticker heads, and graff writers. Shout out to Angel Once aka Angry Elephant for putting together the event.

After trading a few stickers and slapping a few spots, we hit up the Copro Gallery in Santa Monica for the Futurology Group Exhibit alongside the Heidi Taillefer opening of Land of the Blind. Saw some really amazing artwork. I discovered the artwork of Jason Hite. That dude has some amazing work. He had two pieces there. The American Nightmare and Game of Drones. I can’t say enough how much these two pieces speak volumes about our society and where we need to realize that it’s heading. Another dope piece of art I discovered was the work of Timothy Robert Smith. He painted a picture of the Los Angeles streets. It’s super sick. And lastly, in a separate room was the amazing work of Heidi Taillefer. I wish I could’ve gotten more photos. Her work was so realistic looking and popped with colors and imagination. Go check out the artists and the gallery before it goes away.
