Photo Recap: Cancer Crushers Graffiti Party

12:54 PM PDT on October 30, 2015

    Last Sunday, the STP Graffiti crew  presented the 2nd annual Cancer Crushers event at The Graff Lab in Pico Union, just a few minutes west of Downtown LA on Venice Boulevard. Although the month of October is referred to as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, several artists dedicated their walls to those who have lost the fight to any form of cancer and to those who are currently fighting the battle.

    Dangling high above everyone’s presence, were a pair of boxing gloves hanging from electric wires (alongside a pair of sneakers), to encourage cancer patients to “fight” and keep their heads up with positivity. Pink was the color of choice for most artists, for it is the national color that symbolizes (breast) cancer.

    Some, but not all of the special guests artists were: Angel Once, Bugs, Chee, Crise, Drast, Jes, Knef, Lyte, Miles, Other, Rawbs, Revae, Ruthy Jane, Saints, Seraphim, Smurf and Tones. Extra artists were also included the day of to help fill up any extra wall space. LA’s very own OG Huskey Radio was in the house bangin’ all kinds of hip hop hits which were spun by DJ Mishaps. Heads were boppin’ to the music, nearby residents watched the event from their second story apartments, and spray paint misted into the air while vibrant walls spoke to the viewers in memory of loved ones. Please enjoy these photos of the event...
