Men at MOCA: Art in the Streets Exhibit

Let’s Hear it for the Boys - I’ve already mentioned it was a circus last Saturday at MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibit at the Geffen Contemporary members’ opening. I had hoped to snap some stylish women, but discovered it was really the men making statements. With the nature of Street Art, it was a male-centric show and most of the artists were even on hand. It was really touching to watch them interact with their fans. My friends over at Mondette had gotten a sneak peek of the show if you want to read more about it. More men’s style after the jump. I promised you my Shepard Fairey fanboy discovery and look for that fun post over the weekend.

If you’re curious to read more about the art, check out GiantRobot about the show and Hypebeast about Banksy. I really hope you’ve already seen Exit Through the Gift Shop. If you follow Mr. Brainwash (not in the MOCA show), you MUST watch these videos by the über-talented LaMattina Brothers (Joe & David). Here’s parts one and two. || TwitterFacebook
