Beat Swap Meet No. 21 – Los Angeles

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

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.

Craola’s “Stop Haunting Me” at MK Gallery

Posted on by Jared in IN THE MIX, News | Leave a comment

SMH…in awe that is. Seriously, I was standing in front of his pieces, looking at all the colors, highlights, and crazy imagination, simply shaking my head, in disbelief of how dope his work is. Several times throughout the night, I was like, “fuck it, I’m gonnna break the bank and buy one of these.” But obviously I had to stop myself, because I can’t afford a $10,000 painting right now. Unless you guys by my shirts! So check out the Coup Street store now and buy something so I can afford a Craola painting! LOL. Well, schedule some time between now and May 4th to go see it at MK Gallery. You should definitely go check it out. Don’t miss IMPrint Tees offer and seeing this incredible work in person.

Full Circle Show – April 2013

Posted on by Jared in IN THE MIX, News | Leave a comment

Full Circle Show April 2013On Saturday, we stopped by the Full Circle Show and said what’s up to some of the folks, and brands we’ve met there. Full Circle is truly a grass roots art movement, that gets bigger every time. This time we met some of the artists from the brand Fat Kid. Their brand has a similar concept to ours, in that “everyone’s a fat kid trying to eat.” Eat, being the metaphor of hard work and being hungry. They’ll be one of the vendors at our For L.A. by L.A. event on May 18th. So be sure to check them out.

Slap Ya Mama & Copro Gallery Futurology

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.
