The Filter Foundry Artist RETNA Installation...


artist RETNA

 For any that might have wondered from my last Monday's post, what's going on behind the Berlin Wall?  This post is for you!  For any that might be wondering when I'll go from installation art back to other kinds of art in my Monday meanderings, this is the last of the installation art that I have from my current adventures.  However, I'm not sure when I'll run into more of it...

 To celebrate LACMA's Artwalk 2012, the Filter Foundry commissioned RETNA to use his unique style to adorn the building at 5900 Wilshire in Los Angeles, CA.  It's a building that is across the street from LACMA.

 World renowned street artist RETNA painted each section of twenty seven feet high by twenty eight feet long pane individually.  RETNA's window pane "canvas" extended more than three thousand square feet!

Although I did not venture inside, this installation may also be seen from the inside looking out.  As this is a temporary installation, if you intend to visit it, I'd suggest hopping on over to their website to be certain that it's still there.

Interesting window art! I love the look of it and how it can be enjoyed from the inside as well as the outside.

Thank you Miss Val's Creations, the second link of theirs has a shot of the artist taken from the inside while he's painting, I found that quite interesting!

It definitely looks like it was quite a time involved piece of art Stacy, I'm sure it's amazing from the inside too!
