SABER's Heart of Darkness
He may look friendly, but behind artist SABER's chirpy demeanour lurks a seething heart of darkness. Which sucks for him, but not for us - we loved his eerie nightscapes on display at the L.A. Weekly's new Biennial Art Show in Santa Monica. Here he is in front of one of his works, helpfully holding my vodka cranberries
SABER, who lives in Echo Park, is the man behind this enormous mural on the LA River Bed. Apparently you can see it from space, it's that huge.
He is featured in a new graffitti documentary called Infamy by urban documentarian Doug Pray (Skratch, Hype!) alongside fellow Angelino and graff legend TOOMER. L.A. Weekly editor Laurie Ochoa informed me that SABER's art is slated to appear on the cover of a forthcoming issue mapping the city's graffiti landscape.
