HELLO WORLD – The Service Station at Riverside

What’s a good place to house some of the best urban talent in Los Angeles? How about a remodeled 1960s gas station? That’s the location of HELLO WORLD, a show organized by urban art curator Luna George at a location called The Service Station at Riverside. Gathering more than 40 artists, the opening night will feature live painting by Dave MacDowell, Van Saro and Jon Park – and not just any painting, we’re talking a 8 foot by 50 foot mural. Head to the opening reception Saturday, April 20 from 6 to 10 p.m. with activities taking place earlier in the day starting at 2 p.m. Expect intriguing work from photographers, street artists and more including the likes of Raul Gonzalez, Armando Soria and Sergio “Doc 43” Rueda. Resident artist Meex One will also create an installation inspired by Keith Haring. Puro party.
