Recap: Septerhed / Phobik ~ Stone Malone Gallery


This past weekend, street artists Septerhed and Phobik showed new work together at Stone Malone Gallery on Melrose. These two artists have been collaborating together on unique murals in Los Angeles. This was a great opportunity to see each artist shine in their own way in a gallery setting.


Septerhed is no stranger to our TACO readers. In 2011 Sept blessed our coveted L.A. Taco Book with the back cover design. Since then, he's been working non-stop with openings and mural work from Los Angeles to Buffalo. His illustrations, usually done on paper with markers, will at times make their way to murals, adding visual humor and wordplay.


Phobik has strengthened his art by painting with liked-minded individuals such as Mad Man, Gianni Arone and (of course) Septerhed.  His style is a mix of surreal paintings combined with cartoon heroes of the 80's like of He-Man or G.I. Joe. Placing his characters in unearthly settings gives them depth and sets them in a world all their own.


Phobiks Hate Pop and Septerheds Loose Noose of Love will be on display at Stone Malone Gallery til May 24th. For more info about the show visit
