Retna x Mac: Vagos y Reinas at the Robert Berman Gallery September 26 - October 18, 2009

Retna x Mac: Vagos y Reinas at the Robert Berman Gallery September 26 - October 18, 2009

The dynamic duo Retna and Mac are back again and even better than ever with their new collaborative exhibit Vagos y Reinas showing September 26-October 18, 2009 at the Robert Berman Gallery. The title of the show, which translates to “vagrants and queens”, brings together the street-infused styles of Retna, who is best known for his abstract embellishments and calligraphic font, with Mac who is well known for photo-realist approach and use of spray paint. These large scale pieces document their journey together with beautiful depictions of women and homage to neighborhood pride.  The two have collaborated on more than 20 murals in the past, but this will be their first ever exhibit together. In the world of art (especially graffiti art), collaborations are almost always a good thing. Retna and Mac bring some of the most memorable and incredible street art indoors with this exhibit. If you’re in Santa Monica, be sure to check it out!
